ABERSOCH RNLI SPONSORED BIKE RIDE 2016
Sunday, 2 October 2016 from 09:00 to 17:00 (BST)
Abersoch RNLI Sportive
The Abersoch RNLI Sportive is a fundraising non-competitive cycling event that starts and finishes at The Vaynol in the centre of Abersoch village. The event will feature four routes.
Route 1 is a challenging 40 mile ride for experienced riders.
Route 2 is a 30 mile route for riders looking for less distance and climbing.
Route 3 is 15 mile ride.
Route 4 is a 9 1/2 mile ride.
Routes 3 and 4 are planned for family groups with children. All routes are tried and tested by local riders and designed around the beautiful North West Wales Llŷn peninsula.
The event routes were planned to accommodate the riding abilities of all participants. The roads selected and quality of surfaces were based on a comprehensive risk assessment and are suitable for group riding purposes, which will cause minimum inconvenience to all other road users. This in turn makes the ride more pleasant for participants, but also limits the impact of the event in the surrounding area. The route and event timings have been designed to ensure that wherever possible, there are low traffic volumes and away from major towns.
The 40 Mile Route
The 40 mile route will cross the peninsula to the north coast and then go west out to Aberdaron before returning to Abersoch. The route is generally a recognised published route, following parts of the National Cycle Network. First aid facilities will be located at the event HQ and at the half way check point in Aberdaron.
The 30 Mile Route
The 30 mile route follows the 40 mile route, but omits the loop out to Aberdaron. The route is generally a recognised published route, following parts of the National Cycle Network. First aid facilities will be located at the event HQ and at the half way check point in Aberdaron.
The 15 Mile Route
The 15 mile route will use the lower land to the back of Hells Mouth to avoid the steep hills of the other routes and goes twice around a circuit through Llangian.
The 9½ Mile Route
The 9½ mile route follows the 15 mile route, but omits the second circuit through Llangian.
