The UK's most prestigious Sportive returns for its 11th year in 2014. The South Wales event will once again start from the picturesque Margam Park, Port Talbot, having moved there successfully in 2012. 2014 sees the introduction of a mammoth Dragon Devil distance as well as the return of the traditional Corto. 

Offering four challenging distances: the Gran Fondo will take in approximately 2,905m of climbing, passing through the beautiful Brecon Beacons and the Medio Fondo approximately 2,060m. The Corto returns after a brief hiatus in 2013, and the returning distance will have a re-modelled and slightly longer route of approximately 45km. 

The Dragon Devil will certainly not be for the faint hearted with the route including over 3,437m of climbing. There will be a very limited numbers of places available for this option, so those who are keen will need to get in quickly. Those lucky enough to get a place will be well rewarded with an incredibly stunning cycling route which will take in the 'Rhigos', 'Black Mountain' and the 'Devil's Elbow' - the Dragon ride's signature climbs - with the new addition of the 'Devil's Staircase', a climb with a 15% gradient and elevation of 480m. 

The WomenOnly Cycletta will follow the same route as the Corto riders. Cycletta is the UK's leading series of women only bike rides, supported by Olympic Gold Medallist Victoria Pendleton.
