About This Activity

The Continental Welsh Wild West Sportive is the final event of a week-long festival of cycling in Aberystwyth, 'AberCycleFest'. With fringe events all week, leading up to a weekend of criterium racing, downhill mountain biking and the Welsh Wild West sportive. Why not stay a few nights and witness the Ceredigion Grand Prix professional criterium, as seen on BikeChannel whilst enjoying a weekend break by the seaside? 

The sportive is now in it's fifth year, and always takes place on the Sunday of the May Bank Holiday weekend, just two days after the Tour Series race in the town. Choose from four routes to suit all abilities, with our Cawr 106 mile ride including 10,000 feet of climbing over some of the lesser known, but equally as impressive Welsh hillsides.

Sponsored by Continental Tyres, the team will be on hand to handle service emergencies out on the course whilst the Continental kit bag acts as our event goody bag and includes a free innertube, commemorative T-Shirt, energy gel other snacks - great value for money!

Event details and schedule

After the urban based events of Friday and Saturday, it’s time to get out into the countryside and relax. Explore the challenging local terrain on one of three routes which provide something for everyone. Whether you're an experienced cyclist looking to take on the challenging 'Cawr' or ‘Mynach’ rides, or perhaps fancy a more relaxing tour of Ceredigion on the 'Diafol' or 'Corrach', you'll be sure of one thing - one of the most spectacular rides in Great Britain!
