Ruthin Cycling Club invites North Wales Cyclocross riders to Round 5 of the 2018 League. Our thanks to hosts Llanfwrog Community Centre and the people of Ruthin.
This splendid modern community centre is situated in 100 acres of playing fields and acts as a sporting hub for Ruthin Youth FC, Ruthin Rovers FC, Ruthin Lawn Tennis Club, Dyffryn Clwyd Footgolf Centre and Ruthin Cycling Club. The Centre hosts training facilities for nearby Ruthin RFC, a golf teeing range and many local fitness trainers. It is also a thriving community centre throughout the week and has a splendid cafe for all comers.
The Centre is located amidst hilly ground and looks out towards the Clwydian Range. The basis of the course is a 1.3km grassland loop circumventing football pitches. This includes gravel, grass, dirt track and even a splash of tarmac as the course weaves past the Centre. Once in open ground competitors ascend a steep path to the top of a grassy slope more usually used for golf driving. Competitors enter challenging hillside copse in stark contrast to the grassland around it: the ascent requires a dismount and the descent is a cautious battle for traction.
Llanwrog Centre will serve teas, coffees and bacon baps
WCs are located within the Centre. Please treat facilities with respect. We are guests of the Centre.
