Preseli Angel 2016

01/05/2016 - Wales - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

Set in beautiful North Pembrokeshire, the Preseli Angel provides quiet, fast roads, varied terrain and spectacular coastal and mountain scenery.  Challenging, fully way-marked routes deliver a fantastic but eminently do-able course that will suit early season fitness levels.

Organised how sportives should be (and used to be), the focus is on the quality of the route and looking after the riders; a focus on what matters, like a flowing parcours, great food, plentiful drinks, great views and friendly support.

The Angel offers two routes, 40 and 78 miles, now being referred to as 'signature routes', such was the overwhelmingly positive response to a 2012 course re-design. Both routes share the same beginning that includes fast roads, a magnificent climb of the Preseli Mountains and super-fast descent. For those wanting more, the longer route then takes you to the edge of the Preseli Mountain range, through more fantastic scenery before returning you to the foot of the magnificent Carn Ingli for a brutal last climb, the infamous "Bessie's", before dropping back down to Newport - more great views. Both distances feature downhill finishing runs that will challenge you as much as the uphill sections!
