V12 Sportive
Barry, Wales, United Kingdom

The V12 Sportive is a new and exciting open road cycling event starting and finishing on the iconic Barry Island resort, South Wales. There are two distances to conquer with some demanding climbs (it is South Wales after all).

The 100m GF route will take you east from Barry, along the coast to Newport and then over Caerphilly Mountain. You will then head towards the valleys where you will get to ride over one of the nations favourite ups The Bwlch. Youre then heading back to the coast where you will loop around to finish on the prom where you will be awarded your medal.

V12 Sportive
Wiggle Wye Valley Warrior
Chepstow, Wales, United Kingdom

As stunning as it is challenging, the Wiggle Wye Valley Warrior sportive bridges the gap between England and Wales and gives you the best views, climbs and cycling roads of the border towns and villages of both states.

Starting out from Chepstow Racecourse, youll head for one of the main attractions straight away as youll tackle the hills of the Wye Valley first of all. Following the River Wye all the way, darting left and right as do the roads youre sure to enjoy the ride alongside the water. Sit up and absorb the stunning cliff faces and river below before criss-crossing once more and heading into England.

Once on the English part of the course, youll enter the Forest of Dean soon after leaving Wales. One or two small climbs wait in the Forests sheltered and remote roads, but they shouldnt make you too uncomfortable to enjoy the tranquillity and wilderness along the wooded roads.

Heading up through Ruspidge, youll bear left at Nailbridge and head west once more. Around Upper Lydbrook, youll meet the River Wye again and pass over it, although much closer inland compared to before. The winding country lanes continue, as the undulating terrain around the Welsh and English border will keep pushing you along on up-and-down sections.

Crossing the River Wye yet again, youre back on Welsh soil and on the home straight, although theres still time for a sizeable loop to harness the unique rolling hills in the area. The last couple of hills might smart with tired legs, but youd expect nothing less on such a comprehensive border-crossing tour of the valleys.
