Bike Wales update

BIKEWALES - RIDE LIKE A CHAMPION – WITH A CHAMPION!

A major new cycling participation event for all, which gives cycling enthusiasts the chance to test themselves on the roads and valleys of South Wales, will take place on Sunday 21st August 2005. BikeWales offers an exhilarating day out in the beautiful Usk Valley and beyond and is part of a whole weekend of cycling based at The Celtic Manor Resort, Newport on 20th & 21st August.

Also joining in on the ride will be local 22-year old Welsh cycling phenomenon and Commonwealth Champion Nicole Cooke, who will be fresh from competing in a major international race based at the landmark 5-star resort the day before.

BikeWales offers riders a choice of three routes and distances, which all start and finish in the beautiful grounds of The Celtic Manor.

The 19-mile Bronze route is the one set to be most popular with anyone prepared to ‘have a go’ at cycling a longer distance ride, with the Silver and Gold routes ideal for the more experienced cyclists. There will be drink stations, mechanical support and first aid provision on each of the routes, and each finisher will receive a certificate to commemorate their day and a ranking relating to their category of ride. 

BikeWales is set to become a popular annual fixture on the cycling calendar, combining spectacular countryside with the fun of riding on the open road with friends and colleagues.

On the previous day, Sat 20th August, Nicole Cooke is hoping to grab first place in front of her home crowd in the UCI Women’s Road World Cup race, where the cream of the world’s top women’s cyclists will compete for the first time on British soil at this level.
