10 Peaks Audacious Challenge 200km - 23rd July - CHEPSTOW
« on: 09 July, 2022, 08:15:40 pm »


Back for 2022 a 218k Severn Bridge Series GOLD GRIMPEUR AAA event.

Free finishers' patch for all riders.

The only 200k calendar event in the UK this season to date with a massive 4.5 AAA, that's a massive 4,415m of climbing.

This is as tough a 200k 'bare bones' event as you are likely to ever encounter - A true audacious challenge - are you up for it !

This is an event for experienced Randonneurs, capable of riding long distances in all conditions, carrying all necessary food, clothing, spares, first aid etc.

The route guarantees a full day of big climbs and stunning views in often remote locations.

Below is a brief description of the route - it really doesn't do it justice, so I will just say - if you want a full day of climbing exploring the best that Wales has to offer then this event is for you.

Starting from Chepstow you will be climbing from the start.

You will explore Tintern and the Wye Valley before more climbing and fine views to take you near Devauden before a flat(ish) section to Abergavenny.

More climbing follows to get you to Hay on Wye and then you'll ride the lumpy, remote but beautiful sections to Hundred House where you will then start the return leg.

Yet more climbs follow with 2 big ascents in Hay on Wye including Gospel Path.

Next back to Abergavenny for a trip up famous Tumble, then back to Devauden via the little used back way off the Tumble.

Devauden will serve you up it's devilish hill just to finish those tired legs off.

All the hard work is then done and you have an easy descent and flat section back to Chepstow.

Mostly quiet lanes and minor roads with easy navigation.

This event qualifies as a 200k ride in the Super Rouleur Award - See Details Here -
