King of the Mountains Sportive - Wales - Enduraprep

 

From the race HQ in Treforest the route hits its first climb in the centre of Pontypridd. The Craigwen road is over 11% and peaks at more than 400M above sea level. Then onto three mountains which all feature in the UK's top 100 climbs, Bryn Du, Rhigos and Bwlch. At just over 60KM the ride turns at the clock tower in Price Town and heads back via the same route. 

 

The inspiration for this event comes from an old mountain time trial which took place in the 50's. If you think this is tough imagine what it was like back then! Steel framed bikes, shifters on the down tube, heavy woolen jerseys, poor road surfaces and no helmets. If they could do it, so can you! 

 

It won't be easy but remember 'pain is temporary!'
