The Route:

Meeting at Brecon High School in the market town of Brecon, we will be cycling 50 miles (or 25 miles if you decide to join the route at Merthyr) through the open moorland of the Brecon Beacons and a wide variety of urban and suburban landscapes passing close to Merthyr Tydfil and Pontypridd and then finishing at Bute Park/Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Make sure you take in the scenery as this is not a race but a personal challenge so can be taken at your own pace. It’ll be tough but enjoyable with plenty of support and laughs along the way.
