Short-cut 130km

route with short cut option

A feature of the Classic 150km route has been the short-cut - missing out the biggest climb of the day and cutting out about 20km of riding. Still a tough option and something riders often take if their day isn't going so well...

If you arrive after 12 at the Rhayader food stop (just before the short-cut option) you are advised to take the Short-Cut. If you do divert from the 150 option on the day please tell us when you get back so we can adjust your entry.
