Brecon Beacons Devil Sportive

Hay On Wye, Powys

Organiser's Description

This sportive offers three stunning routes taking in the best of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Radnorshire Hills. Leaving Hay on Wye on a twisting mountain road, the route climbs steadily into the Black Mountains. Panoramic views of the Wye Valley unfold to your right and nothing more than sheep and skylarks will disturb the peace and quiet as you continue climbing to reach Gospel Pass - Wales’ highest road. Having topped out at 549 metres, enjoy the long descent through a wooded valley past Llanthony Priory. This is simply some of the best scenery you can enjoy from the saddle anywhere in Wales, in fact in the UK!

The long 213k route is an epic day out in the saddle, with 3695 vertical metres of climbing, but don’t think the 114k medium route is a walk in the park! With over 2000m of climbing and 100km+ of pedalling, it’s still an excellent challenge. Our 83k short route is a great choice if you are short of time, new to sportives or looking to push the pace over a shorter distance. This route has 1234 vertical metres of climbing which includes the classic climb over Gospel Pass!

We will have one food stop for the short route, two for the medium route, and three for the long route. All feed stations will be in village halls with toilets, mechanical assistance and route maps on hand. There will also be water stops along the route at intermediate points (i.e. in between the feed stations).
