Having again listened to the feedback from you we have tweaked the rides which we hope make for a more enjoyable and challenging experience.

The Monmouthshire 20 over the flatlands of the Usk Valley make for a leisurely ride on the existing course with a stop at the Black Bear Bettws Newydd.

A Monmouthshire Sportif over a shorter route than last year which but still retains the challenging ride around North Monmouthshire. The undulating roads of the iconic Rolls Estate before descending into the Monnow Valley and climbing out through the historic village of Grosmont to meander back over the rolling roads back to Abergavenny

The Iron Mountain 70 completes the ride through the Monmouthshire Sportif before tackling the Iron Mountain and Llangynidr Moors before descending into Llangattock and returning to Abergavenny.

The Iron Mountain 100 again completes the Monmouthshire ride, climbs the Tumble and heads over the Llangynidr Moors and descends into Llangynidr. On through Talybont, Llanfihangel Tal-y-llyn and Llangorse before climbing the Dragons Back and descending to Abergavenny via Crickhowell.
