As part of the world-wide Shimano gravel event, Cardiff Cycle Workshop are hosting a 162km/100 mile self-supported ride.
The plan is to meet from 05:50, ready to roll out from the workshop at 06:00. The route will be taking in as many gravelly tracks and trails as possible, heading in a north-easterly direction to scale infamous hill climb “The British”, before circling back via lots more gravelly trails, some of which will be steep, rocky and loose. There are planned food stops at Talybont Stores, Talybont on Usk and at Bike Park Wales, before meeting up back at the workshop, for some food and celebratory drinks. View the route on our Strava club here. https://www.strava.com/clubs/CardiffCycleWorkshop
Hot food and drinks (veggie curry / tea / coffee) will be provided at the finish , once Nic and Jon make it back! Feel free to bring a beer or similar if you want.
