Ride Clwyd 45 Short route preview



 

 

We start from a new HQ - just 100ft from the old one, on the same slip road outside the Airbus factory in Broughton.  Lots of car parking is available opposite:


 

This year we go left out of the slip road (at the traffic lights) and have a great flat ride for the first 5 miles:



Watch out for the route split at these traffic lights - 45s slide right whilst 65s and 100s go straight on.  Lots of signs will be out on the day:


 

Straight after the split there are several rises and then quiet country roads towards Ruthin:

 

Descend down to the only food stop - which is off-course so remember to go back to regain the route:


 

Penbarra - biggest challenge on the whole course - very long - make sure to reserve plenty of energy for this one and don't go too hard at the beginning:


After that there's no further challenges.  You'll be mostly on quiet back roads all the way around Mold:
