Cycle Event, Sun 20 - Tue 29 May 2018




A celebration of cycling in Mid Wales, including town centre criterium racing, downhill mountain biking and a mass participation ride - the Continental Welsh Wild West Sportive, covering all the best roads in Ceredigion.

With some of Britain’s top cyclists making a rare appearance in Mid Wales, festival visitors can watch all the on & off road action and also experience the beautiful and undiscovered lanes of Ceredigion on their own bikes.

On Friday 26th May, the roads of Aberystwyth are closed for bike racing when the Ceredigion Grand Prix criterium hits town! The award winning course circumnavigates the iconic 19th century Old College, the 13th century Castle, the Victorian Pier and also brushes the town centre for what is a great day’s entertainment for all.

Downhill mountain bike racing takes place on the 27th May and is one of the most watched disciplines of cycling and certainly one of the most exciting. Think Downhill Skiing and you get an idea of the speeds, thrills and spills associated with this sport. Aberystwyth now has the chance to experience this action within its boundaries as the Aber Cycle Festival brings downhill mountain biking to Constitution Hill on the seafront, which promises to be one of the most quirky downhill courses in the UK.
