The Red Kite Events team (actually Neil and the pixie) have put together a single loop taking in the best trails the area has to offer. One of our tough routes with darkness added in! Bring your lights and see if you can tame one of our Devil routes in the dark. Just being in the Crychan after dark is scarey enough.
The route will start from the centre of Llanwrtyd Wells and head out from town into the heart of the Crychan Forest before heading back. Lights are compulsory. We will be using luminescent signs so there should be no issues with finding your way.
Expect our normal mix of singletrack trails, techie trails (not the steep ones from the Mondraker Enduro Series), some fire roads, not very much flat, a lot of climbing and of course some cracking downhills. Will will be build in some cut off points just incase you are struggling and need to get back.
The event will be mass start at 6pm. We will be timing the ride and will send out the times 24 hours after the finish.
We will have a food stop at the halfway point serving sweet and savoury food. There will also be a pasta meal waiting for you at the finish.
Our broom wagon will be on hand if you need recovering and of course we will have our first aiders out on course.
Mid Wales has big hills, you will be physically and technically challenged on this event, 45k doesnt sound like a lot but in Mid Wales in the dark it will be plenty and you will not be wanting for more at the finish.
