“Fantastic sportive today! Well done to all who helped. Great feed stations, caring marshals on bikes warning us of the Devil’s Staircase descent! Excellent little goodie pack and super meal to finish. I have never ridden over 4 hours before, or over 80k and certainly not on a cross bike! Pat on the back Clive and team! And flapjacks to die for Francine.”
Donna Morris (TCX 75 rider)

What more can I say? It was a real pleasure to see all the happy, smiling faces returning to the Finish. The good weather helped, of course, and the diligent work of all the helpers ensured that the whole event ran like clockwork. I shall put on my thinking cap now, and devise some good routes for next year. Email me if you have any thoughts on the matter.

My thanks to all the helpers who made the event such a success:

  • Powys Raynet for radio communications.
  • St. John Ambulance, Rhayader (who had nobody to attend to)
  • Dave and Roy for erecting signage and rechecking it on the day
  • Dave, Alex, Peter and Richard for Broom Wagon duties
  • Dave, Dave, Neil and Martin the motorcycle patrollers
  • Chris and Nicky at the Feed Stations
  • Liz and Lance for gate marshalling
  • Francine and Emma for Registration
  • And Francine again for her Fabulous Flapjacks and cheese rolls
  • Carol Cobbet for the photos (
  • Plus anyone else I may have forgotten

Happy cycling
