SPORTIVE EVENTS AND DATES

Recommended Sportives

This is a list of sportives which club members have completed and enjoyed.

There is a comprehensive listing of Sportives on the Cyclosport website

Dragon Ride

Our local sportive - also one of the biggest in the UK with around 3000 entrants. A choice of two routes taking in Ogmore Valley, the Bwch, Rhigos, the Neath and Afan Valleys (and Storey Arms and Abercrave for the longer route). Particularly popular with hill-starved London clubs. Well known because of the number of Alpine type climbs (long gradual ascents rather than short steep ones). Of course the climbs are nothing like as long as those in the Alps.

Trans-Cambrian

Based in Rhayader, it takes the spectacular mountain road between Llanidloes and Machynlleth, then down to the coast just North of Aberystwyth, before sending you back into the mountains at Plynlimmon and then the Elan Valley. Six '1 in 7' hills in the first 25 miles make sure your legs are feeling it by the end.

Etape du Tour

The grand-daddy of sportives. A mountainous stage of the Tour de France ridden a few days before the pros do it. 8000 entrants - book early!

Forest of Dean Spring Classic

Local early season event with lots of short sharp climbs.

Etape Caledonia

The only sportive in the UK to take place on closed roads.

Tour of Pembrokeshire

For those that don't cycle, Pembrokeshire is synonymous with spectacular coastlines and beautiful views. For those that cycle, it is synonymous with plentiful steep climbing, as well as the coast and the views.
