Registrations are now being taken for the 2014 ride. There will be a limit on the amount of riders and the 2013 ride was a sell out, so it is advisable to enter early. Enter here.

The 2013 rider times are now available here. Thanks to all of those who took part, it was a tremendous day.

The Cambrian Coast Sportive takes in some of the UK's most spectacular countryside. Starting from Aberdovey and set entirely within the Snowdonia National Park, the routes follow the coast and beaches, climb the mountains, skirt around lakes and descend through forests, making this arguably the most scenic sportive ride in the country.

In this sparsely populated part of the country, well over half of each route is done on minor back roads with smooth tarmac and where cars are seldom seen allowing riders to ride happily side by side.

Highlights of the routes includes the spectacular Cregennan Lakes with its views over the Mawddach Estuary, the coastal road to Fairbourne (10km) right by the sea, the crossing of three estuary bridges and the mighty Bwlch y Groes (aka Hellfire Pass) which is the highest piece of tarmac in Wales and features in Simon Warren's '100 Greatest Cycling Climbs'.

The routes are comprehensively marshalled and sign-posted with 3 feed-stations (5 on the Long route) and riders benefit from electronic chip timing.

Take time to explore the routes, view the photos and register online via our simple rider entry form. We look forward to welcoming you in September 2014.

Cycling Weekly - December 13th 2012

"Riding Wales is perfect at any time of the year but the country's attraction during the autumnal months is close to magnetic."
The Telegraph

"It is hard to imagine a more idyllic place that is as beautiful as it is uncrowded"
