Merlin Ride

Merlin Ride -
10th Anniversary

Sunday, 20 August 2017 
The Merlin Ride was established in 2008 and is now in its 10th year. The event has continually developed and grown and we are delighted to announce the 10th edition for 2017.

There are now three different routes to choose from, each one is quite different from the other, however they all have their own character.


100 miles+
Taking in the spectacular and iconic Devils Staircase and the Usk Reservoir on the northern edge of The Brecon Beacons National PArk.

70 miles+
Riding through the beautiful Towy Valley and, like the 100mls+ route, taking you through The Brecon Veacons National Park with scenic views of the Usk Reservoir and Y Mynydd Du.

50 miles+
Designed as a scenic route through the lush and verdant landscape of Carmarthenshire, this is ideal for a first sportive ride and a perfect introduction to all that The Merlin Ride has to offer.
