Join us for a 160km (approx 100 mile) circular road ride from St Davids in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. 

Based on the “Tour of Pembrokeshire, Paul Ties 100 mile” sportive route, the ride begins in St David’s, at the far end of Pembrokeshire’s northern peninsula.  The route heads south towards Marloes, hugging the southern coast line before heading north to Crymych, Fishguard and back along the northern coast to St Davids.

This is the first of three rides in the Pembrokeshire area during the May Day bank holiday weekend - details of the other two can be found by following the links below.  Will (your leader) will be camping at Porthclais Farm Campsite just outside St Davids.  

Second Ride (Sun 6 May) - http://outdoorlads.com/event/pembrokeshire-road-cycle-part-2-3-%E2%80%9…

Third Ride (Mon 7 May) - http://outdoorlads.com/event/pembrokeshire-road-cycle-part-3-3-%E2%80%9…

This ride will be an “epic” monster day with approx 2000m of ascent.  If this is not your cup of tea there will be shorter rides on the Sunday and Monday.

Unfortunately the area is served poorly by the train network, therefore a car would be most handy.

Pace and Terrain

This will be an epic 100 mile route on tarmac roads.  The event pace is designed for road bikes rather than hybrids.   

You do need reasonable personal fitness for this event as there is a fare distance to cover.  Broadly, anyone who has recently cycled over 50 miles without too much difficulty will be able to complete this ride.
