Velothon Wales

Velothon Wales takes place on Sunday 8 July, and starts and ends in Cardiff.

The 140km sportive takes you along the Welsh coastline with sweeping views of the Bristol Channel before heading inland and uphill, climbing past the food station in Usk up to Abergavenny in the Brecon Beacons.

On the way home you’ll ride past Pontypool and Caerphilly before your triumphant return to Cardiff city centre.

Over the course of the route you’ll climb a total of 1,798m / 5,899ft, and along the way you’ll have access to multiple feed stations and mechanical support to ensure you’re fully fed and supported the whole way around.

For the competitive riders out there, there will be prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female riders, plus King and Queen of the Mountain challenges.

Before and after your ride you can peruse the event Expo, where there will be loads of the latest brands, gear and clothing.
