Wild Wales 2023
Welcome! This year will mark the 39th edition of this most prestigious cycling event, which features a different route each year, but always set amidst the spectacular scenery of North Wales. The event is NOT a race – but a traditional tourist challenge ride in which riders are invited to complete the course within a generous time allowance. Riders should note that the roads are NOT closed for this event and that they should ride with due care and consideration for other road users.
The event is open to all riders, whether or not members of Cycling UK. It is organised on behalf of Merseyside CTC and any type of cycle may be ridden, provided it is roadworthy. Low gears are advisable, and special attention should be paid to brakes, wheels and tyres. It is a challenge event, but a reasonably fit rider should experience no difficulty in completing the course within the time allowed. Being set in the glorious North Wales countryside, riders should expect both steep climbs long descents and some non-metallic road surfaces so care is required at all times.
