The Gower Bike Ride returns with two routes. For those doing the 35 mile route we have reversed the large loop so you now turn right at the end of Vennaway Lane. The distance is the same but the climbing is reduced by some 20%. The 12 mile route remains the same.
Part of your entry goes to the The Evening Post And Wales online nominated charities. This year they are 2 Wish Upon a Star and Mind Cymru.
In 2018 it was the Wales Air Ambulance and in 2019 it was Duchenne UK, Parkinsons UK and Lupus UK.
You are free to choose your own charity if you wish to be sponsored.
Llanrhidian Primary School will once again be our halfway refreshment stop for our riders taking the 35 mile challenge.
We are again grateful to Cycle Solutions for their sponsorship and to Sancta Maria who have come on board as event partners for 2021. We would like to thank them and the many other companies and individuals who come together to make the day possible.
We concentrate the entire event throughout the Gower and our riding marshals return again this year. There will be a host of support along the route but remember the event takes place on open roads so follow the Highway Code.
You will receive an email prior to the event inviting you to download an App for your phone. It is free to use and you will receive event updates and the route which you can follow when riding. It works offline too saving your data allowance.
Any COVID related changes will be advised in good time.
Registration closes Wednesday 21st July.
Gower Bike Ride Start Time 8:00am to 8:30am
On the route you can expect all the support you would expect from an organised event including:
• Fully signed
• First aid provision
• Riding Marshals
• Water stops
• Half way food stop
• Cycle Repairs
• Recovery vehicles
The route takes in many of the outstanding country lanes that the Gower has to offer. The route isn’t flat but we have avoided most of the big climbs on the Peninsula.
