Allocated starting times between: 07:45 & 08:25
Facilities: X Rated
Topography: Separated sections of very hilly route with level sections between.

Remember to wear a jersey with very large rear pockets to carry home your book purchases from literary capital of Europe, Hay-On-Wye.

Whilst not eligible for audax altitude award points, this x-rated event does have some clumps of large hills to cross but the gaps between. It is a challenging day-out. As an x-rated event, it has minimal facilities with a car park start and requirement to sent proofs-of-passage to the organiser afterwards. Whilst x-rated, there are plenty of shop and cafe opportunities en-route.
