The Devil's Road Challenge
by Henry Peacock
One of Wales' big cycle rides of the summer is being offered as the best value event of its kind. The Devil's Mountain bike Challenge and The Devil's Road Challenge are being organised on September 2, as part of the World Alternative Games in Llanwrtyd Wells. They are expecting to welcome visitors from all over the country, and from abroad.
The Rides Form Part Of The World Alternative Games
"These are two fantastic events for cycling enthusiasts, and they will be held during a great festival of fun in our town that is the World Alternative Games, and to be a part of that will make the effort worthwhile," said Neil Delafield of Red Kite Events.
He continued: "Our mountain bike challenge - one day of superb riding around a beautiful area of Wales - is just £12, and our Road Challenge is just £10, which is fantastic value for such a big organised ride, and includes free camping."
Luckily It's Taking Place In September
The Devil’s Road Challenge, like the MTB route offers two options, but these are 50 and 80 miles. There is heaps of climbing available in the quiet and stunning lanes of Mid Wales. More good service in the form of feedstops, mechanics and medics are on the route with a fully signposted route. The free camping gives you a chance to ride and sleep under the Welsh skies. Entry is only £10 if booked before 31st July.
Llanwrtyd Wells Offers The Finest Trails
The Devil’s Mountain Bike Challenge gives a choice of two route options of 50 and 80km taking in the very best Llanwrtyd Wells has to offer.

The entry fees are £12 before 31st July.
