The Brecon Beacons are just made for riding and we’re determined to make the most of the natural landscape with this awesome hill-fest of a ride.
The Evans Cycles South Wales Road Sportive consists of 3 cycling races: Short 32 miles, Medium 49 miles, Long 76 miles.
Starting from the popular Parc Bryn Bach riders will head out over the bleak tops before plunging down a fantastic 6 mile descent! The long loop heads off here to ride a long, gradual incline past Crickhowell before yet another 6 mile drop. Obviously all this talk of descents doesn’t hide the fact that there is a fair amount of climbing and a little sting in the tail. After the last drink station you pass the beautiful Talybont Reservoir before climbing out the back of the valley on a 20% hill. Look out for the cattle grid as this signals the top and most of the uphill.
