The Dragon Ride is widely regarded as among the toughest and sportives in the UK, with a choice of four routes topping out at a massive 300km for the Devil.

Whichever distance you opt for, a great day's cycling is guaranteed as the courses wind through the quiet roads and breathtaking scenery of the Brecon Beacons.

2022 will see the Dragon follow the reverse routes for a second year running - a switch-up that offers even Dragon veterans the chance of a fresh perspective on the familiar terrain - and climbs - of South Wales.
