      Wheels in Wheels Events are proud to present the 2013 edition of this Classic road sportive, with the start and finish at the New Monmouth Show grounds on the edge of the town.

 This year we are adding a shorter ride as a taster of the Classic for those riders wanting to try out the Forest of Dean. Nearly 80% of the shorter route will follow the Classic but with only 8 of the climbs to complete; these will of course include the famous Symonds Yat to finish. The route at just over 100kms is still a challenge for those wanting to try a Classic or need to test out early season legs.

 The new Show Ground can accommodate all the parking free allowing us to open the event up to 2000 riders for 2013. We plan to keep the charm of the Marquee Trade Village but will have more permanent facilities for everyone at the event.

 Again in 2013 we will be able to have camping on site and hopefully more activities on the Saturday at the same time as afternoon registration.

 We will have extra trade support from Michelin, Shimano, and Clifbar and more support to follow.

 However with all these changes the one constant will be the 90mile very testing route through the Forest of Dean with over 8000ft of climbing and 20 recognised climbs for 2012.

 We are planning to celebrate these changes by offering all entries before January 11th a discounted price of £25.00. So we advise a speedy entry.

 All riders will receive a goody bag at the finish plus the usual Wheels in Wheels unique signage, 2 very well stocked feed points and full mechanical motorcycle backup enroute.

All riders will receive a replenishing meal on their return to the finish and certificates recording their times will be available within the hour.

 Registration will be available on both days with 2pm to 6pm on Saturday 4th May and from 7am on Sunday 5th May. We will also accept entries on the day at £35.

 The Show Ground will be sign posted from all major roads all weekend and those wishing to camp please contact us at to confirm a booking.

 We look forward to seeing many of our regular riders plus many more with our new venue and facilities.
