NCP Car Park, Dumfries Place, Cardiff (above Evans Cycles)
MPORA will be covering all of the night’s action with exclusive interviews and rider footage so if you can’t make it along then look out for the race videos.
Cardiff has a great transport network and is easy to reach by road, rail, or air. Located on the M4 corridor, navigating by car is pretty straightforward and the city is also well served by rail services to and from London, and the rest of the UK. Bus and rail services link the centre of Cardiff to the valleys and South East Wales, and there’s even a trail bus out to Brecon Beacons National Park (between June and September). For anyone travelling from further afield, Cardiff airport is some 30 minutes from the city centre.
Cardiff is a relatively compact city and easy to get around on foot or by public transport. If you’re travelling by car you’ll find the event site and Evans Cycles store located on the corner of Dumfries Place (A4161), which serves as part of the city’s main ring road. Parking is provided here for riders only and spectators are asked to use the nearby Knox Road, NCP car park for a reduced rate of £5 from 3pm-midnight.
Why not make a weekend of it and spend a night or two in this great city with plenty of accommodation to choose from close to the city's visitor attractions, shops and train station. From waterfront views in the Bay, the hustle and bustle of the city centre, or beautiful countryside, you'll find everything you could want in Cardiff. You can find a list of hotels and accommodation here.
The results are in for the Evans Cycles Urban Dual. Congratulations to Lewis Lacey for scooping the £1000 first prize.
Were you fast enough??
