At the turn of the century, a time when "sportives" did not exist on British shores, a small collection of 270 cyclists braved the fearsome, yet stunning terrain of the South Wales Mountains to complete an epic 226km ride; unbeknownst to them this journey would become a world renowned cycling challenge, the Wiggle Dragon Ride.

The group were faced with some of the country's most testing climbs including the 'Rhigos', 'Black Mountain' and 'Devil's Elbow' and working together they conquered everything in their path, returning home in glory. Each cyclist was hailed a hero and became part of cycling legend.

For over a decade thousands of cyclists from over thirty countries around the world have journeyed to South Wales to cycle in the tracks of these brave pioneers; their goal, to claim that they too have "slayed the Dragon". It is now said that for one to become a "true sportive rider" one must have completed this famous ride; with its long and relentless alpine-like climbs it's one of the UK's toughest and most rewarding cycling challenges and a "bucket-list" event for cyclists across the globe.

Have you got what it takes to slay the Dragon?
