BOSTIN' VYRNWY VELO SPORTIVE
1 / 4
See results and photos
The Bostin' Vyrnwy Velo will still offer a choice of three fully signposted routes among the glorious Welsh countryside, taking in the beautiful lakes at Bala and Vyrnwy for the longer riders.All three routes will follow the same initial 25K, 15 miles or so riding from the HQ through Buttington and on towards the delightful market town of Welshpool. Here you will ride up the main street, past all the interesting shops, and out the other side to begin a climb out into the countryside beyond. The route continue up past the turning to Guilsfield, the previous location of the Bostin' Vyrnwy Velo, and on to the 2017 route riding towards a long descent before the climbing legs have to get back into gear to ascend the rise at Bwlch-y-cibau. The picturesque scenery is all around when the Bronze route turns left into a quieter country lane and leaves the other riders to carry on deeper into the hills. The Bronze routes reward, after riding through the Nant Alan river valley, is a refreshment stop at the highest point of its route at, what we call, Laughing Angel (Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa). After some tea and cakes the Bronze riders head South down quiet lanes with picturesque views through rolling hills, wonderful hamlets and villages back towards Guilsfield and then retrace their steps to Welshpool and the finish line. A challenge but a memorable 70K, 40 mile ride.
