Always Aim High Events Director, Tim Lloyd explained why he thinks the sportive has become so popular.

“North Wales is an idyllic location and to be able to organise what has quickly become an iconic North Wales event is a real privilege. I think the success of the sportive is down to the stunning route is, the atmosphere the crowds generate and the fact that people know it is one of, if not the best sportives across the country.”

The Snowdonia Etape Eryri, which starts by the world famous Caernarfon Castle, offers cyclists four routes that travel around some of the best climbs, views and roads that Snowdonia has to offer.
