The Full Taff Cycle ChallengeJoin us for the tenth anniversary of one of the most beautifully scenic cycling challenges that Wales has to offer, as we follow the historic Taff Trail from Merthyr Tydfil to Cardiff Bay.

Teams of four riders are invited to take up this part of the challenge, and you will need to be 13 years old or above to enter (Participants under 16 must be accompanued by a responsible adult).

The 28 mile (44km) route starts at Rhydacar Leisure Centre in MerthyrTydfil, and heads off along the towpath of the former Glamorganshire Canal and passes small Welsh valley towns that are rich in industrial archaeology.

Your team will then make their way to the ever developing city centre and the finish line at The Roald Dahl Plas in Cardiff Bay. It is here that you will receive your heroes welcome, and a great sense of personal achievement.

All you need to do is visit the registration page and get your team of four signed up! There's a small registration fee of £10.00 per team member plus a sponsorship ask of £250 for taking part in the half Taff event. All participants will receive a Taff Trail Challenge t-shirt and bike disc for use during the event.
