CTC Cymru is pleased to announce that the 2017 Welsh Festival of Cycling is returning to Ruthin.

The Festival provides an opportunity for cyclists of all descriptions to experience the beauty of Denbighshire and beyond with rides which have been geared to a range of abilities and interests.

Ruthin lies in the Vale of Clwyd about 20 miles inland from the North Wales coast. The location gives scope for gentle rides in the valley or hillier rides taking in the Clwydian Range, Denbigh Moors, or the Berwyns.

The Festival is based at Ruthin Rugby Club which has camping available for solo & large tents and also space for caravans and motor homes. (There are no electric hook-ups this year).

What’s On

For 2017 the Festival will run over 4 full days, with the first rides starting on the Friday morning (registration from 4pm Thursday afternoon).  Five nights camping is available at the Rugby Club from Thursday 20th July until the morning of Tuesday 25th.

Participants can pick up their routes sheets when they register their arrival at the event.  There will be a range of routes available, from short family rides to longer more arduous routes as well as some off road routes.  There may be ride leaders for some of the rides. The rides will give an opportunity to explore the lovely surrounding hills and will mainly be on quiet lanes.

There will also be several events which count towards the Tourist Competition.                                                                                                                                                                                   

Registration and Accommodation

To book a place costs £15 for an adult and £2 for a child under the age of 16 or a full time student under the age of 21.  This booking fee is towards the costs of organising and publicising the event, and providing route sheets (which you can keep should you wish to return to this excellent cycling area).  This fee is non-refundable.

If you wish to camp the site will be open from Thursday afternoon and the prices are as follows:
