Trans Cambrian Cyclo Sportive

Last years event – nice view!

An exciting new Sportive will be held in Mid Wales on Sunday September 10th. The Trans Cambrian Cyclo Sportive starts in the old market town of Rhayader in the middle of Wales, crosses the Cambrian Mountains to Machynlleth, follows the coast road down to Talybont and then returns over the Cambrian Mountains to Rhayader via Nant-y-Moch, Devils Bridge and the Elan Valley.

The route will take you through some of the most beautiful and spectacular scenery in the whole of Wales, and as an added bonus, the roads themselves are quiet and well surfaced.

At 140 km, it is shorter than many Sportives, but the hilly profile makes it a very strenuous and challenging course.

Use your end of season fitness to take up the challenge, and enjoy what is destined to become on of the most popular Sportives on the British calendar.
