Rollin' and Tumblin'

200km cycling event starting from The Ship, Alveston. Controls at Blaenafon, Talybont on Usk and Monmouth, plus 4 information controls.

The original and the best, accept no pale imitations!

Leaving Alveston we cross the Severn bridge and skirt Chepstow before dropping into Tintern. Climbing west out of Tintern alongside the Anghidi River we pop out at Cobbler's Plain, descend Star Hill and ride through Raglan. We have a flat ride to Llanfoist before setting off up The Tumble. First control is at Blaenavon.From here we have about 30km of mostly urban riding before heading down to control at Talybont on Usk on quiet rolling roads passing through forests and past the reservoir. From Talybont we ride the Usk Valley road to Crickhowell and on to Abergavenny and take the old Ross road to join the A466 before climbing again at Llancloudy. We continue heading south to control in Monmouth before the final run back along the Wye Valley road passing Tintern Abbey for the second time and retrace back to The Ship at Alveston. Route sheet and GPX files along with other useful info will be emailed to entrants nearer to the time of the event.
