Even with biblical wind and rain, it is still a stunning beautiful ride. Brilliant sportive the best in Wales if not Britain. Expertly organised and run by a cyclist who epitomises all that is great about this sport.

Excellent day despite the rain + winds. Good course and great to have hot meal after the ride.
It must be a fantastic ride in good weather - one of the most scenic around!

Utterly brilliant route and organisation, only let down this year by my own over-preparation and over-cooking it early on resulting in severe cramp after 25 miles, ho hum!!

Third year doing it, will be back again next year!

Well marked route on really good surfaces,well marshalled and good back up.
Excellent feed stops,High 5 gels,bars,energy powders,home made cakes,bananas etc.

A fantastic route through what is a very beautiful part of Wales. Weather will always be a bit dodgy in September but this just seemed to emphasise the nature of the terrain. The hot meaql provided at the end was most appreiciated, and the staff at the visitor centre also require a thnk you. Certainly will be back next year and would recommend to other cyclists.

I did the middle distance and loved it. I went out quite early and there was a lot of sheep and sheep shit on the roads which made the descents slow and a bit dangerous. Other than that a beautiful area to ride, some lovely, painful climbs and a great 46 mile route. Cant wait until next year.

Overall a very well run sportive. The out run to the first feed station was tought with lots of short sharp hills. There after came a short flat section before the Alpine style climbs kicked in. This was a course for a real climber :-) Would not recommend it for a 1st timer. The volunteers I met were very friendly and I will be back next year to claim those 37sec to get sliver!!

as with all sportives i often forget to check total ascent. it would be helpfull if marshals and somebody, anybody at the feedstations knew the total ascent.

overall, one of the best rides of the season.
