2022 Tenby Tywyn 400 km audax

Linking 2 historic Welsh seaside resorts, this 400 km audax makes use of an out-and-back along the 2 longest river valleys in Wales, the Tywi and Teifi. Rather than starting early in the morning, the 2022 event starts in the evening. Kicking things off there’s a cooked dinner in Tenby’s Dennis Cafe, included in the entry fee. The dark stretch with easy navigation is ridden at the beginning when you’re fresher. It does mean that this is an event for experienced riders, confident in riding for the first 9 hours largely self-sufficient. The scenic mountain scenery should all be seen after daybreak, with shops and cafes all open for the rest of the ride.

Six riders gamely rode the first running of this event in 2021, with an early morning start. They returned, shell shocked, 20 – 25 hours later in the small hours/early morning of a beautiful June night. Can’t promise the same weather for 2022, especially earlier in the year. But as a BRM event you can get your pre-qualification for PBP off to a prompt start.

The AUK Calendar event starts 9 pm Saturday April 2nd from the Dennis Cafe in Tenby. You can enter here. 

The route is here.
