Abersoch RNLI Sportive 2015
Sunday, 4 October 2015 from 09:00 to 15:00 (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 two routes.
Route 1 is a 28 mile ride for experienced riders
Route 2 is a 9½ or 16 mile ride (depending on the number of laps) for family groups with children.
Both routes are tried and tested by local riders and designed around the beautiful North West Wales Llyn 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 28 Mile Route (Route 1)
The 28 mile route will cross the peninsula and then go west to circle back round 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 Tudweiliog.
The Family Route (Route 2)
The family route will be shorter and will use the lower land to the back of Hells Mouth to avoid the steep hills of the 28 mile route. The route has a circuit that can be ridden round once to give an overall distance of 9½ miles or twice to give an overall distance of 16 miles.
Please note that age restrictions apply for this event: Route 1/The 28 mile route; you must be aged 16 or over to take part in this route. Route 2/The Family Route; Riders under the age of 16 can only participate in the Family Route and under 14's must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 14-15 year olds may ride unaccompanied with parental consent.
