Come out and see some of the UK’s top domestic riders battle it out on local roads!

On Sunday 5th March we are encouraging as many people as possible to come out, make some noise and cheer on riders from across the UK who will be taking on the club’s Tour of the Mining Valleys Road Race.

The event has sold out and promises to be an exciting race as the riders tackle the 75 mile race over a four lap course comprising Southgate, Llanfarian, Llanilar, Trawscoed, New Cross, Southgate before a finishing route of Llanafan Saw Mills, Pontrhydygroes, Devil’s Bridge, Pisgah, Capel Seion and Moriah, finishing between Moriah and Southgate (Penparcau).

To support the race there will be no Sunday club rides to encourage as many people as possible to be on the course cheering on the riders!

The race starts at 10:30am as the riders leave Aberystwyth Rugby Club and roll out onto the race circuit.

Mid Wales Go MTB Series

The series will provide opportunities for those new to racing or mountain biking to try an event on a marked course in a fun and friendly way. The routes will also be suitable for those more experienced in racing who want to keep their fitness up.
The series will be made up of 5 rounds with the 4 best results to count towards your final total. Riders must be registered for the series at Rounds 1 or 2 to be eligible for a trophy at the end. Where the Mid Wales rounds incorporate part of another series such as the WMBS then the adult class to count will be the fun category.
The classes will be :
U6, U8 (Youth E), U10 (Youth D), U12 (Youth C), U14 (Youth B), U16 (Youth A), O16 (Junior), Adult (Over 18)
The rounds will be :
February 12th @ Coed Y Brenin hosted by Dreigiau Coed Y Brenin
April 16th @ Aberystwyth hosted by Ystwyth Juniors
May 21 @ Penrhyncoch hosted by Ystwyth Juniors
June 25th @ Newtown hosted by Hafren CC
TBC hosted by The Bulls
There will be the option to have a practice on the course before each race and we hope to have a podium and prizes at each round.
A big thank you goes to Tony Brooks who has agreed to sponsor the series and will provide trophies at the end of the series.
It may seem a little complicated but it really isn’t, just turn up and have some fun.
