La Roue, a brand new event for 2024!
La Roue (The Wheel) in French is another amazing Sportive from Velo29. Gone are the days of rinse and repeat, you now crave new and exciting rides, exploring new areas and meeting new people. All the with back up of the well-known Velo29 support, sitting on your roue arriere 😊
In La Roue, we explore totally new roads to Velo29 Sportives, which is super exciting! We depart from Cheshire (a first) and quickly head out onto some exciting and picturesque roads. The theme of La Roue is to trace a lot of the Welsh Border, we actually dip into Wales many times along the way. This isn’t intended to be a Super Challenge Ride on any of the 3 routes, more a glorious early season dip into some new locations, with a few lumps along the way!
The strong in the tail comes towards the end as we ‘enjoy’ Hope Mountain! A hairpin climb reaching over 300m! It’s worth the effort as the views of Waun-y-Llyn Country Park are stunning! All 3 routes tackle this climb, don’t worry though, it’s downhill all the way back to Chester from here.
La Roue is set to be an important feature in the Velo29 Early Season Calendar, you’re going to really love exploring North Wales and this new (to us) part of Cheshire. We hope we see you on the start line!
