As you might know and maybe read on our website, Mountain Biking the Brecon Beacons had made earlier plans to celebrate the 60th diamond anniversary of the Brecon Beacons National Park founding. In order to celebrate, Mountain Biking the Brecon Beacons wanted to organize the anniversary with an exciting bike race. However, because of financial issues of that very moment, it became impossible to continue with setting up this race. We are now happy to announce that Mt4 platform has offered a generous way to help our organization, by sponsoring our first upcoming bike racing event.
The bike race will be open to people of all ages and bike riding abilities. This means that everybody can participate to this exciting event, which will be held on the Brecon’s Visitor Centre Yellow route. We already made plans to choose this location, because of its perfect length of 8 kilometers. This route allows participants to follow the path very easily and that is why even beginners can join this event. The Brecon Beacons Bike Race will host the actual bike race in combination with a lot of entertainment and a delicious barbecue at the end of the day. The idea is to bring your own bike to the event and if you don’t own a bike, you can hire one in Brecon on the same day.
During the barbecue we will be celebrating the three winners of the race, by rewarding them with exciting cash prizes. If you are willing to claim that prize, you have to make sure to practice before participating the race. In order to participate, you will have to sign up for the competition by the end of next month. The printed tickets, sponsored by Mt4 platform are available at our Brecon’s Visitor Centre. Don’t forget to bring your ticket on the day of the event, or make sure that you have photographed the ticket and bring the print screen on your smartphone. Mountain Biking the Brecon Beacons is very excited for this event, since this will be the first organized event. Thanks to the Mt4 platform, our dream is now finally happening! We would like to thank the company for their generous gift, because we couldn’t manage this without them.
On our website you will find more information about the many routes that are available in the Brecon Beacons. You can also already check out the yellow route, which will be the main route during the event. Make sure to check up your bike before bringing it to the event and that all possible issues are fixed. In order to bike in the safest way possible, Mountain Biking the Brecon Beacons will hand out biking helmets and knee pads before all contestants will start with the race. Also, we would like to ask you to bring a water bottle, in order to stay hydrated during the entire race. If you have more questions about the Brecon Beacons Bike Race, please contact us so that we can prepare you in the best way possible. We are very looking forward to the event and hoping to make this a biannual event!
