Join us on this series of two rides from Llangollen. See here for the Sunday Ride
You may wish to stay over with us at the Mid Wales Multi Activity Camp, but the rides are open to all.
On this ride we'll head south from Llangollen through a series of remote valleys, some of the finest scenery in this part of Wales. We'll ride up the Tanat Valley and over the into the Dee Valley, which we'll follow back through a great series of twists and turns into Llangollen.
Please note the leader may not be staying at the Camp on Friday night so don't panic if they're not there until just before the start time!
Pace and Terrain
On road, with a healthy dose of climbing. The event pace and route is designed for road bikes rather than hybrids and is aimed at those who are reasonably bike fit, however the day is intended to be an outing rather than an endurance test. We will stop for slower riders to catch up whilst going faster in between stops to allow them to develop their technique and fitness. Broadly, anyone who has recently cycled over 50 miles and who has tackled some steep hills without too much difficulty will be able to complete this ride.
