BAND OF CLIMBERS

UK'S TOUGHEST GROUP RIDES - WALES

SUPPORTED BY

FREE GROUP RIDE

Wales. A Land of vast mountains, high climbs and narrow lanes. We've teamed up with Band of Climbers Ambassador Ed Laverack to bring you a very tough route for our first event away from England. 100km with over 2900m of elevation. This is the only BoC ride in Wales this summer and with Ed on navigation, we know it's going to be special.

ROUTE BY ED LAVERACK

We asked our ambassador Ed Laverack to plot this route, and if you know Ed, you'll know he loves a steep climb. If you're not aware, Ed is a former Pro Cyclist, UK National Hill Climb Champion, YouTuber, and is one of the fastest men in Europe riding up hills. Don't worry though, we've asked him to ride an easy pace for this one. If he doesn't we're going to make him carry all the water. All 5 gallons of it.

WHERE AND WHEN

NO DROP RIDE

This is a 100km (62 miles) group ride, which will be ridden at a relaxed pace. This is not a race, and this will be a no drop ride. There is over 2900m of elevation. (9500ft).

THE START

The ride will start in Rhydaman, in Carmarthenshire. Once you've signed up, the exact start location will be emailed to you 1 week before the event.

SELF SUPPORTED

As this is a free group ride on open roads, there is no mechanical support on the course, and the route is not marked. There will be several Band of Climbers ride leaders on course to make sure the group completes the ride, and we will send the STRAVA Route 1 week before the ride to download onto your GPS computers.

You will need to bring your own tools, tubes and any spares in the event of a mechanical issue. Due to the severity of the gradients on the climbs and descents, we strongly suggest ensuring your brake pads and chain are in a good condition. Your bike and legs will be tested to the limit on this ride.

FEED STATION BY OTE

All of our summer group rides will have a mobile feed station, kindly supplied by OTE Sports. The feed stations are stocked with water plus Electrolyte Drinks, caffeine bars and anytime protein bars to make sure you ride strong and complete each ride. You will also find exclusive offers and gifts in your BoC goody bag at the end of each ride.
