The Devil is back


The legendary Devil Ride sportive comes back to mid-Wales this June. The event takes its name from the Devil&’s Staircase climb and Devil’s Bridge – both features of the 100 mile route.

“We’re expecting 200 riders to set out on 18th for a big circuit through mid- Wales,” says organiser Andy Dawson of cycling event company Rideventures, “It’s just over 3,000m of climbing through remote, high Welsh landscape – the views are one of the big features.”

Last run in 2012 the Devil Ride was once a premier bike event for Wales and now it’s being brought back by Rideventures cycling company. “We revived the Autumn Epic from Knighton last year and want to get both Welsh bike events back to national prominence.”

Riders can expect full route support, refuelling stops at intervals and free hot food on the finish line. “There’s a 50 mile option Demon Ride that goes through the Elan Valley, too,” says Andy, “So there’s something for everyone who’s enthusiastic about cycling in mid-Wales.”
