As a prelude to the full-blown challenge in 2019, we invite you to help establish the event by supporting the taster on Sunday 16 September 2018. Fully supported, chip timing for those that want it and feed stations of course, and finish line at the iconic Pembroke Castle.
All cyclist whether riding as individuals or clubs are welcome to participate in this launch day and help us establish the next big thing in Welsh cycling for years to come. A leisurely ride through the Welsh countryside or attack the course and go for a time – it’s up to you.
Starting on the Aberystwyth sea front and running down the coast linking Cardigan, Carew and finally Pembroke castles. A great day out on your bike and an opportunity to raise funds for your favourite charity should you wish. Get a taste for the big one in 2019.
Keep an eye on extremesportswales.com for more details and updates – entries will be open shortly.
It’s been quite a long gestation period due to the complexity of dealing with so many local authorities but thanks to the encouragement and support of Caernarfon and Gwynedd Councils it looks like we can finally push ahead with our first Welsh Event – the Castle to Castle Cycle Race which will be launched from the iconic Caenarfon Castle. A big thank you to their events team for all their encouragement.
This event, the first of many we hope to run under the Extreme Sports Wales banner, has been provisionally scheduled for the weekend of September 14/15 2019. So why not help us establish the next big sports event in Wales. The 2019 event will be run as a sportive with the full blown road race added for 2020. We can trial the route with your help and input before we go big in 2020.
All cyclists of all levels are welcome to join us on the event which we have split into two stages. The first running from Caernarfon Castle to Aberystwyth on the 14th and the other from Aberystwyth to Pembroke Castle on the 15th. Each stage will be around 85 miles of beautiful and challenging coastline and countryside. You are welcome to sign up to do one or if you really want a challenge both days (at a discounted entry fee) as the racers will in 2019.
If there is a charity you would like to support we will provide a charity form for you to use to raise money for the charity of your choice. So whether you want to attack the course like a pro or enjoy a more leisurely ride, whether as a cycle club or solo we very much look forward to having you support the next big thing in Welsh sport.
