In addition to the three main routes already announced for the BikeWales mass participation event set for August 21 in Newport, an additional family-friendly route will also be available. Around three miles long and held within the grounds of the five-star Celtic Manor Resort, the extra route is ideal for families and those wishing to avoid the roads.
BikeWales is supported by the government-backed Health Challenge Wales initiative, which encourages a return to a healthier, active lifestyle. Said Sports Minister Alun Pugh AM: "I'm a keen cyclist myself, and am really looking forward to welcoming such an excellent new event right here to our doorstep. I urge as many people as possible to get involved - whether it's to cycle or maybe to be a marshall, helping to make the event safe and fun."
