The WILD WALES CHALLENGE is a bike ride - with a difference. Held annually, on the bank Holiday Sunday at the end of August, it attracts 600 cyclists, young, old, and not-so-young to Bala in North Wales, where the event starts and finishes.
The WWC is NOT a race - it's a challenge ride, with a different route every year, set amidst glorious scenery and using minor roads and lanes, and riders ride it at their own pace, the object being to complete the route within a generous time allowance.
Being set in North Wales, the route is of course up and down, and it is a challenge. The distance varies between around 76 to 86 miles. The route is devised by the Organiser in the hope that riders will look around as they pedal and enjoy the spectacular surroundings which abound in Wales.
Who can enter? The event is open to all cyclists; you don't have to be a member of a club or organisation. Although the WWC is organised on behalf of the Merseyside District Association, which is affiliated to the Cyclists' Touring Club (C.T.C.). There is an entry fee (£12.00) in the current year which covers all the services provided to riders and the surplus goes to the Merseyside D.A. The WWC therefore is not a private enterprise event run for profit, but an official C.T.C. event.
