This is not a tour 300 B

313km cycling event starting from Llandrindod. Controls at Llanidloes and Newtown, plus 3 information controls.

A ride set completely on NCRs and open roads, the ultimate road-based challenge. Route chosen to emulate the sort of conditions found on rides such as 'The Tran Am'. Rider self-sufficiency a pre-requisite.

A challenging 300km ride for those that prefer to keep any rough tracks to a minimum. The ride does feature a short section (a couple of km) near to the River Wye shortly after Newbridge on Wye, after that it will be hard road surfaces all the way. Making your way up and through the Elan valley to Cwmystwyth. Then climb over to the Wye valley, through Llangurig and onto the quiet market town of Llanidloes. Climbing through the pretty Hafron Forest passing the Dylife gorge and dropping down through Machynlleth. Continuing towards Tywyn, then climbing back lanes to Dolgellau. Rising up passing Cross Foxes as you prepare for the descent to Dinas Mawddwy. The ride then climbs Bwlch-y-Goes en-route to Lake Bala. Onward through picturesque oak woods in preparation to ascend Hirnaunt Pass, the reward - a long descent to Lake Vyrnwy. After a short rest the route crosses to the Rhyd to pick-up a direct route to Newtown. Leaving Newtown on the gentle climb towards Arrivee, the ride finishes with a downhill run into Llandrindod.
