Come and join us for a short road ride with likeminded cyclists from your local Evans Cycles store. This mini sportive format features a fully waymarked circular route taking in some of our staff’s favourite roads around the store. The shorter distances may mean no feed stops on route but we'll be waiting to welcome you back with a free hot drink when you finish.
Starting from the centre of Cardiff this route offers a real mixture of terrain. First we head along the coast towards Newport and it remains almost pan flat for the first 10 miles before we turn and start heading inland. We continue heading inland to Machen where we pick up teh National Cycle Network for a short section towards Caerphilly and the main challenge of the day, up and over Caerphilly Mountain. Sections of the climb ramp up to over 10% but once you hit the top it's a downhill run all the way back to the finish.
Please note this route starts from the centre of Cardiff so involves some riding on urban roads to get you out and back into the city centre.
