Chester & N Wales CTC President's Ride 2023

Event ride

Event description

The Chester and N. Wales CTC President's Ride is a long established, annual event.  It gives an opportunity for riders from all parts of our widely spread section to meet up socially whilst also enjoying a ride in either our beautiful Welsh or Cheshire scenery, (venue alternates year on year).  This year, after missing 3 years due to lockdown, it is Wales' turn.  A warm lunch is provided (soup & sandwich, hot pudding, tea/coffee) at Neuadd Eleanor in Llanfair DC,  where the President's Trophy is awarded to a deserving member or group.


Location & Route

Start finish is at St Asaph.  Car parking is available in the town.  Flowerpot cafe open from 10:00.

We shall depart at 10:30---exact venue to be decided and given on your route sheet.

The "official" ride  to Llanfair DC & return is essentially out via Rhualt/Bodfari/Llanbedr DC; return via Ruthin and Denbigh.   Each route is approximately 30km/19miles.  Riders may choose their own shorter options or drive direct to the lunch venue where there is car parking available.

Lunch is at Neuadd Eleanor  12:30 for 1:00 pm.

The route is all on road but not closed ones! Do take the time to enjoy this tour of our wonderful Welsh  lanes in the company of your fellow cyclists.

Route sheet and gpx files are to be emailed to you during the week prior to the event.


 Pick your own groups---but please not too large to allow other traffic to get past in our narrow lanes.
