Shelter Cymru’s ‘Castles & Cathedrals’ is back and offers riders one last challenge at the end of the season.

With three fantastic routes to choose from, each offering their own challenge, Castles and Cathedrals is a sportive not to be missed.

All of our routes start and finish in Cardiff and travel into the Rhondda Valley before splitting off from each other, with the Castles Grande Route heading into the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Castles Grande- 93 Miles (7,893 feet of climbing)

Castles Medio- 50 Miles (4,631 feet of climbing)

Castles Piccolo- 30 Miles (2,298 feet of climbing)

Riders will return to Cardiff for the end of the challenge for food and to collect their medals.

Castles and Cathedrals is a picturesque sportive, taking in some of the most spectacular scenery Wales has to offer.

Cycle for Charity

Once you have paid your registration fee, you may choose to also raise money for a good cause.

Should you wish to fundraise for event organisers Shelter Cymru and help prevent homelessness in Wales, you can set up you own online fundraising page on Just Giving. We do not specify a minimum target – every penny you raise will make a huge difference.

Should you wish to cycle for an alternative cause, please contact your chosen charity directly to let them know you are supporting them.

Entries close on Tuesday 10th October 2017.

Castles and Cathedrals is organised and promoted on by Shelter Cymru; the people and homes charity in Wales.
