The V12 Sportive is a new and exciting open road cycling event starting and finishing on the iconic Barry Island resort, South Wales. There are two distances to conquer with some demanding climbs (it is South Wales after all).

The 100m GF route will take you east from Barry, along the coast to Newport and then over Caerphilly Mountain. You will then head towards the valleys where you will get to ride over one of the nation’s favourite ups… The Bwlch. You’re then heading back to the coast where you will loop around to finish on the prom where you will be awarded your medal.

The 75m CS route is equally challenging and follows the same route as the GF. You too will climb Caerphilly Mountain before heading into the rural lush, greens of the Vale of Glamorgan before your coastal run in to the finish line at the prom to receive your medal!

Both distances are fully marked, marshalled and supported by sumptuous feed stations along the route. 

There is chip timing and a KOM section split to brag between your friends as to who climbed it quickest!
