This really will be a cycling festival to remember and we look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful part of the World.
You will also be welcome to join us for a pre ride 'pasta party' at the rugby club from 18.00 on Saturday, this must also be pre-booked when you enter the event.
The courses have been planned very carefully so that whichever one you choose, you won’t ride the same stretch of tarmac twice!
Organised by local cycling enthusiasts and award winning professional event organisers, the Etape Eryri is one not to miss!!
The route could not be more spectacular, with four distance options on offer.
Etape Bach 47
This is the shortest route at 47 miles. But don't be deceived, this will be among the most gorgeous and challenging 47 miles you will ever ride.Entry fee: £32.
Etape Canol 76
This comes in at 76 miles with some mega climbs to get your legs and your lungs burning. Equally as beautiful but a little bit tougher than the bach. Entry fee: £36
Etape Mawr 103
This is the biggie! A monster 103 miles of awesome tarmac on climbs you never believed you could ride! Are you tough enough to take on the Etape Mawr. Entry fee: £40
This is a short family ride (approx. 6.5 miles) so that the kids can get involved too. Starting and finishing from the same location as the senior routes, we hope to inspire young riders to one day become British Cycling heroes! The Etape Teulu route will follow quiet roads with beautiful scenery for you to enjoy. Children must be accompanied by adult cyclists for the duration of the ride. There is no fee for the Etape Teulu.
