Welcome to the Etape Eryri – The Snowdonia Cycle Sportive, powered by Chain Reaction Cycles.
Entry numbers will be strictly limited so that the quality of this unique event is not compromised in any way.
If you are not sure and need convincing that this is a must for your sportive calendar then check out this incredible video of the 2012 event. You won't be disappointed!
The 2013 Etape Eryri was an incredible day, with so much to see and do and an incredible warm welcome from the local Welsh communities.
We are making every effort to offer you a great value event, consequently the Etape Eryri entry fees will be kept as reasonable as we can make them. Your entry fee will include electronic chip timing, numerous feed stations on route, refreshments at the finish, loads of awesome spot prizes and a fantastic event goody bag for all participants. As well as this there will be masses to see and do in order to keep spectators entertained while the ride is taking place. This will include some brilliant live music on the Castle Square in Caernarfon, loads of great activities and kids entertainment too. This really will be a cycling festival to remember and we look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful part of the World.
There is limited Saturday night camping at Caernarfon Rugby Club with ample toilet and shower facilities. You will also be welcome to join us for a pre ride 'pasta party' at the rugby club from 6pm on Saturday, this must also be pre booked when you enter the event.
All routes will start and finish at the incredible and iconic Caernarfon Castle. The castle square will become a mecca to cyclists for one Sunday in June. We have planned the courses very carefully so that whichever one you choose, you won’t ride the same stretch of tarmac twice! For more detailed route information click on the event info page.
We are very proud to be working with our friends at Chain Reaction Cycles, and with all of the communities along the ride route. Thanks guys for helping us make this a Sportive to remember!
