This stunning sportif offers three stunning cycling routes taking in the best of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Radnorshire Hills. Leaving Hay on Wye on a twisting mountain road, the route climbs steadily into the Black Mountains. Panoramic views of the Wye Valley unfold to your right and nothing more than sheep and skylarks will disturb the peace and quiet as you continue climbing to reach Gospel Pass, Wales highest road. Having topped out at 549 metres, enjoy the long descent through a wooded valley past Llanthony Priory.

Brecon Beacons Devil Sportive routes
Each sportive has at least two options of different lengths – a short and a long route, if you will. Routes are designed to take in the best scenery the area has to offer while sticking to the quieter roads wherever possible. You can find route maps and downloadable gpx files for each sportive on the relevant event page. Routes are comprehensively waymarked with brightly coloured markers at each junction. So, as long as you keep your eyes open and pay attention, there’s barely any risk of going astray.
We will have one food stop for the short route, two for the medium route, and three for the long route. All feed stations will be in village halls with toilets, mechanical assistance and route maps on hand. There will also be water stops along the route at intermediate points (i.e. in between the feed stations).
