Event timing

Timing for the event will be provided by Sport Timing Solutions, a leading specialist in chip timing in the UK. Together with their technical expertise, Wales Cycling Events will ensure that your ride is timed down to the last second meaning that every last effort will count. Special timing mats at the start/finish line will record your time and results will be available on the website after the event.

Please note that the Cambrian Coast Sportive is a non-competitive event and not a race. Rider timings are purely for information and for the purposes of your individual challenge.


Here is a guideline for what you can possibly aim for:

  Km/Miles Gold Av Kmh/Mph Silver Av Kmh/Mph Bronze
