Additional Dragon Ride places available

The 2011 Dragon Ride will see the 4,000 riders tackle a revised route

Set your alarm and fire up your laptop because Wiggle Dragon Ride organisers are releasing a further 75 places for the sell-out sportive.

The original allocation was snapped up in just 22 hours in December ahead of the Welsh event on June 5. 

But the additional entries will be available from 8am on Wednesday May 4 (tomorrow) via

The places are all for the 200km Gran Fondo ride. However, riders can opt to cut the route shorter and do the 130km Medio Fondo event when they reach the summit of the Bwlch following the first ascent.

The revised route, previewed by RCUK last month, will take 4,000 riders from Pencoed towards Cowbridge and then along the coastal roads around Southerndown and Ogmore Vale before heading to Port Talbot to start a 14-mile long climb to the top of the Bwlch. Ascents of the Rhigos, Crynant and Cimla follow, before another ascent of the Bwlch.
