One of the wildest and most beautiful parts of the UK, North Wales also packs a punch with some legendary cycling climbs. On our North Wales weekender we take in five amazing climbs over two days and ride into the wild on small B roads with amazing views all around.
The highlight of this weekend is probably Stwlan Dam, a 3.4km climb with Alpine like hairpins and some steep gradients. We finish day one on the beach in Barmouth and enjoy a social dinner all together. The next day we head over the second highest mountain pass in Wales (Bwlch y Groes) and ride on remote roads for a lot of the day. This is one of our favourite routes in the world and is not to be missed.
We start and finish the weekend in Ruthin, close to the border and with good transport links. We will send you the address for the start with secure parking and a place to shower & change before heading home.
Come join us in North Wales for one of the best cycling weekends on the planet!
All of our Best of British cycling weekends are social, we ride in two groups of max 16 with a local ride leader and mechanical support in our support vehicles. On the flat and rolling terrain we all stick together and then climb at our own pace, regrouping at the point the ride leader has agreed (often for a coffee at the top).
On arrival in Ruthin you will be met by our team. We have two local ride leaders, one for each group who will ride at the front of the group. We also have a mechanic who will be in our support vehicle with spare wheels & equipment.
We set up feed stations every 40km with nutrition & hydration. We will give you a bag to put anything you want (extra kit, nutrition etc) which you can pick up from the feed stations.
Set in beautiful Barmouth right on the beach, this hotel is well set up for cyclists with secure bike storage. We eat here at their welcoming restaurant and get a full Welsh Breakfast before ride two.
Our North Wales Weekender starts in Ruthin and includes two epic rides in Snowdonia National Park and surrounding area. We ride in two groups on a no rider left behind policy. Each group has a ride leader and our support van is on hand to help with any mechanicals.
We stay on the coast in Barmouth and have a social dinner all together and then a full breakfast the next morning before hitting our second epic ride!
