Those interested in riding can still sign up now to guarantee their entry during a week-long priority booking window that will open in the coming weeks.

The event, which takes place on 14 June, 2015, has courted thousands of pre-registrations from throughout the UK and Europe and is set to be a huge event, in the mould of the enormously successful RideLondon. Cyclists will take over Cardiff city centre and test themselves over a challenging 120km route that includes the infamous Tumble climb – featured on today’s Tour of Britain stage.

The amateurs will then make way for the professionals, who will race a similar course in a UCI-sanctioned event that’s hoping to attract many of the world’s top riders and teams.
