Back with a summertime CX Challenge treat!
Sunday 11th June 2017
8.30am for 9am start (Gates open at 7.30am for arrivals and sign on from 8am onwards)
FlanRou 'Ribinoù' our mid-summer CX 100k 'challenge ride' is once again starting right in the very heart of 'FlanRou' country. We're keeping it intimate with just 200 places available for you CX'ers, Gravel Monkeys & MTB riders who love our mix of terrains and rated 'sectors', including of course one of your favourites - The Barnardsberg!
This summers 'Ribinoù' route will include some of your previous favourite sectors, mixed up with few new sectors and surfaces that you'll relish. As always the final route is a guarded secret that only the FlanRou 'ninjas' know right up until the day, but it'll be around 100k (ish) with a feed stop and break mid way.
We're starting and finishing at the same local cyclist café, Sweets Tea Rooms, where you've enjoyed riding from in previous editions. It's central to our route - so perfect for set up, start, finish and ideal for non riding supporters to base themselves and eat cake!

'I’ve ridden a lot of Dyfi’s, Brecon Beasts, Margams, Newnhams, 24-hours, cx and xc – but this was proper hard and proper fun!'

Nevermind riding, we ached from laughing - non stop laughter too it was like 'Whacky Racers' on CX bikes - we will certainly see you next year!
