A new cycling participation event for all will take place on Sunday, August 21, 2005, In Wales, UK. BikeWales offers a 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 August 20-21.
Also joining in on the ride on Sunday will be local 22 year-old Welsh cycling star and Commonwealth Champion Nicole Cooke, who will be fresh from competing in the UCI Women's Road World Cup race, where the world's top women's cyclists will compete for the first time on British soil at this level.
BikeWales offers riders a choice of three routes and distances, which all start and finish in 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.
