Shelter Cymru’s Castles & Cathedrals is back for its 7th year, with three fantastic new routes to choose from in 2019.


By taking part in Castles & Cathedrals you’ll be helping us to support the thousands of people in Wales who face the trauma of homelessness each year. In 2018, our riders raised a total of £12,000, which enabled us to help another 125 people to find, and keep, a home.


As usual, all of our routes will start in Cardiff, but this year we’ll be venturing through the beautiful scenery of the Vale of Glamorgan. With three distances to choose from, we have something for cyclists of every level.


Riders will return to Cardiff for the end of the challenge for food, to collect their medals and to celebrate a job well done!


We look forward to welcoming you for our biggest fundraising event of the year.


Entries close on Tuesday 10th September 2019.
