A whole country from top to bottom in just one day. 185 miles of the best countryside Wales has to offer to a cyclist - this iconic sportive ticks all the right boxes. From the picturesque town of Caernarfon to Chepstow, taking in the Llanberis and Gospel Pass this ride is not the easiest on the calendar but will leave you with the biggest smiles. Best not think about it too hard, if you have the experience then sign up to this great day out. Entries opened 4th July 2016

Cut offs - as long as you are riding the flat and down hills, you spend no more than 20mins in each feed station, and you start between 4am and 5am - the course will be open and you will find us at the finish to welcome you.

Entry Includes

  • Fully Signed Route
  • 4 Feed Stations along the route - sweet and savoury snacks available and access to water to re-fill water bottles. Variety of food available at each of the four feed stations and these will include fresh baguettes, selection of cakes, soup and fruit

  • First Aid cover throughout the ride
  • Showers at Chepstow
  • Personal kit bag transfer from Caenarfon to Chepstow

The personal kit bag should weigh no more than 10Kg when placed on our pre-loading scales and be labelled with your name and ride number. For those camping we can transfer your tent too, so long as it's not of marquee proportions! Sorry but no liquids in the bags - they just make a mess of your kit. Unless you're making own arrangements please hand your kit bag over to our Kit Van Marshals based at registration before heading to the Start. Your kit bag will be at Chepstow awaiting your arrival.

Support

We are providing back-up facilities and we must insist that your supporters, friends and family do not bring any vehicles out on the route to follow as this will create unnecessary congestion and will be a danger to cyclists and other road users. We are keen to encourage support at the start and finish.

Only riders on the event will be allowed to enter feed stations.
