Combining a closed road sportive alongside a UCI sanctioned professional race, Velothon 2016 promises to deliver another fantastic weekend of cycling in Wales.

On Sunday 22 May 2016, up to 18,000 riders will roll across the start line in the heart of Cardiff and embark on a completely closed road cycling sportive that takes in some of Wales’ most breath-taking scenery. The 2015 event was such a success that we’re returning to Cardiff for 2016 which promises to be even bigger and better than the first. This is a great event for Marie Curie supporters, setting off from Cardiff – home to our Research Centre and near our Hospice in Penarth, the route then passes the National Support Centre in Pontypool.

The 140km course is a challenging route, incorporating two famous and notoriously difficult climbs, a great achievement for all riders.

Total climb: 1826 metres
