Velos Tenby-Tywyn

Description

422km cycling event starting from Tenby, Pembrokeshire. Controls at Llandovery, Llandiloes, Tywyn, Tregaron, Boncath and Tenby., plus 2 information controls.

New for 2020, a stretching spin along and through the spectacular Cambrian Mountains, from one legendary seaside town to another, and back again, following Welsh railway lines past and present.

Rolling coastal route out of Pembrokeshire to Carmarthen, before following the Towy valley past Llandovery and over the Sugarloaf, then following the upper Wye to Builth and Rhayader. Traversing the Cambrian mountains to Machynlleth and Happy Valley gets you to Tywyn and the Talyllyn Railway. The route returns over the spectacular Nant-y-Moch mountain road, then down the Teifi through Tregaron to Cenarth. A direct route south traverses the Preseli Mountains and the rolling spin back to Tenby. Excellent transport links and lots of accommodation options for all budgets in one of Pembrokeshire's premier coastal tourist towns. Bring your family if you wish, shorter social ride on Sunday morning after the main event. Event starts and finishes in one of Tenby's cafe institutions - the Dennis Cafe - ensuring optimal fuelling before and after. All profits from this event go to charity - Patch.
