We’re delighed to announce that the Sarn Helen Sportive is back for 2016 on Sunday, 3rd July!
This stunning sportive which ventures into three of Wales’ most scenic counties – Neath-Port Talbot, Carmarthenshire and Powys – is considered by many cyclists as one of the most scenic cycle sportives in Wales.
From the stunning scenery of the south Wales valleys to the sweeping bends around the Black Mountains and the Llynn Brianne Reservoir, this sportive not only offers beauty, but a couple of beasts as well in the shape of the Devil’s Elbow and the Devil’s Staircase!!
The Sarn Helen Sportive really is the complete challenge for cyclists to enjoy, but don’t take out word for it, give it a try yourself.
This year we’ve teamed up with our partners at the Virgin Active Glamorgan Health Club and have a super fun family day lined up for families and all Sportive entrants too!
The Sarn Helen Sportive is being held on Sunday, 3rd July and riders can choose one of two stunning and challenging routes – The Devil and Black or The Dam Devil.
The Devil and Black (76 miles) route tackles the Devil’s Elbow and the Black Mountain and takes in some of the most scenic countryside Wales has to offer. Entry for this route is £30.
The Dam Devil (117 miles) route also tackles the Devil’s Elbow and after enjoying the sweeping bends around Llynn Brianne Reservoir, you get to pit yourself against the infamous Devil’s Staircase – scene of many a Tour of Britain Road Race battle! Entry for this route is £35.
Both rides start and finish at the Virgin Active Glamorgan Health Club in Llandarcy (SA10 6GZ).
Parking will be provided for all Sportive entrants and there will be a FREE family fun day for family members of the entrants to enjoy upon completion of a day visitor form at the club.
Riders are requested to meet in the Virgin Active Glamorgan car park at 7:00am to check-in ready for the grand départ at 8:00am.
