Description

Venue The Bishops, St David’s 22 mile and 36 mile routes We ride in small guided groups to cater for all paces and abilities.  We are anxious for everyone to enjoy their ride.

Rider Briefing

We’re looking forward to seeing you on Friday 31st January.

We will meet at St Davids Leisure Centre which is adjacent to the school from 08.30hrs.

The safety briefings will commence at 09:00hrs, please have an idea of the pace you’d like to ride at so we can create a couple of groups.

If we have a repeat of last year, it will be windy, cold and wet so please dress suitably, fit lights to your bike and carry a source of energy, we’ll have gels at the start.

As well as guides we will provide you with a route card and you may like to familiarise yourself with the routes on the website and download them to a navigation device.

If you have any mechanical issues look out for Joe Kitchell who will be parked at the start and then out on the course. His number will be on your route card.

Scott Thomsett from Crys Melyn Cycling and Dave Mitcheson, will be leading the fastest group on the 36 mile route which will provide a wonderful opportunity for you to share experiences.

Showers will be available when you return to the Leisure Centre until about 13.00hrs so please remember to bring a towel with you.

It is essential that you ride safely at all times and minimise inconvenience to other road users, so please keep this in mind, especially on the A487. On narrow, twisty lanes, you need to be able to stop within the distance you see before you.

Please make your way to The Bishops in Cross Square from 12.30hrs. You can walk down (10mins walk), park at Oriel y Parc (5 mins walk) or try and park in the town (20 mins!).

Please email peter@tourofpembrokeshire.co.uk with any special dietary requirements you may have. We’re able to cater for everyone but it’s useful to just let the chef know beforehand.

We’re delighted that some of our suppliers, charity partners and volunteers from behind the scenes at the Tour of Pembrokeshire will be present, so do have a chat to them and feel free to provide them with any feedback because it helps us to improve the event.

N.B. Don’t forget your helmet and shoes!
