Velothon Wales

Sunday 8 July 2018

The annual Velothon Wales returns to the roads of south east Wales welcoming some of the world’s best cyclists as well as thousands of recreational riders and charity fundraisers. 

In addition to the popular 140km route, two shorter routes of 125km and 60km are on offer opening up the event to cyclists of all levels of ability and ambition.

Visit Velothon Wales for more information.

Road closures

To ensure the safety of cyclists it will be necessary to close some roads and introduce parking restrictions along the route although all roads around Newport are due to re-open by 11am.

Residents who are affected have received full details of road closures and a route overview map.
