Velothon Wales

Challenge yourself to the limit at one of the biggest and most beautiful cycling events in the UK.

Combining a closed road sportive alongside a UCI sanctioned professional race, join over 15,000 cyclists for the second year of the largest cycling event in Wales!

Up to 18,000 riders will roll across the start line in the heart of Cardiff and embark on a completely closed road cycling sportive that takes in some of Wales’ most breath taking scenery. Offering a challenging route, Velothon Wales is a superb opportunity to test your endurance and also fundraise for a worthy cause.

Taking place after the sportive, the professional race is likely to attract some of the world’s best teams and riders.
