Five Valleys Sportive 2018...

218 cyclists took part in the sixth annual Five Valleys Sportive for Prostate Cymru at Margam Park, Port Talbot on Sunday 16th September. About three quarters of the participants opted for the longer route of seventy two miles, tackling the steep climbs of the Bwlch and Rhigos mountains whilst about a quarter of cyclists chose the shorter but equally challenging route of fifty four miles. The cyclists battled against rain and wind throughout the route and were rewarded with a medal at the finish line.

The Five Valleys Sportive saw a range of cyclists enter, from amateurs to members of cycling clubs. A number of the cyclists were taking on the challenge for the first time and some had travelled far to take part. Other participants returned for consecutive years to enjoy the sportive challenge again such as eleven year old Dylan Sage. Whether affected by prostate cancer in some way or just keen to push themselves all cyclists enjoyed the event held in aid of Prostate Cymru, the leading prostate health charity in Wales.

Prostate Cymru would like to thank all those who helped make the event a success including, but not limited to, Ray Giles, the Pritchard family, St Johns Ambulance, OnIt Sports, CJ Constuction, Race Timing Solutions and AerocamUK.
