As one of the UK’s most iconic and respected cycling events, Dragon Ride captures the essential spirit of Wales, allowing riders to cycle through the breath-taking landscape of Brecon Beacons and experience the wild and rugged beauty of the Welsh countryside.
Catering for a large range of cyclists, Dragon Ride offers a variety of routes. From the Macmillan 100, a 98km cycle around the Brecon Beacons, to the infamous Dragon Devil - a bucket list 296km route with 4614m of ascent. The Medio Fondo, Gran Fondo and Dragon Devil all include the iconic Devil's Elbow - one of the most famous climbs in the area! Each route is designed to challenge riders with a series of difficult climbs and elevation.
