Platinum Route Overview

Also known as ‘The Big One’, you will need to train for this route and then train some more ready for those big hill climbs. This is the route that has the biggest challenges to overcome but also has the biggest rewards. Take in the spectacular views around Abergavenny as you catch your breath once you’ve tackled the monster of a hill at Lydart. The food and water stations will be needed as this route will put you to the test with hills that are short & sharp and long & gradual. Don’t let the challenge put you off because this route has a lot to give back for those brave enough.
