A challenging bike ride through the valleys of South Wales.
For 2012 the routes avoid the coastal section used last year and once again concentrate on the superb climbs South Wales has to offer. The Medio Fondo Ride will include the Cimla, Rhigos and Bwlch climbs as well other ascents. The Gran Fondo Route, will in addition to the above have one new major signature climb, The Black Mountain and the return of the "Hill With No Name" in the Brecon Beacons, an old favourite not included on the Dragon since 2007. The Corto Route is in effect a circuit of Margam Mountain.
The event is intended for experienced cyclists, unlike shorter rides this is not a leisure ride and should only be attempted by reasonably fit and competent riders. The event takes place 3-4 weeks before the Tour of France Etape participation ride; the Dragon Ride offers the only compatible climbs in the southern UK, ideal as training for the Etape.
