This year's Lon Las Challenge, which is a sponsored 5 day cycle riding from North Wales (Holyhead) to South Wales (Cardiff), utilising Route 8 of the National Cycle Network was a major success. It's the first time a charity has organised an official challenge of Lon Las - which is a spectacular route.The riders had an amazing time and raised a lot of money for the charity - which provides specialist therapy for children throughout Wales who have cerebral palsy. Here's a brief itinerary from the last Lon Las Challenge:
