The Routes


Silver Route

Distance: 52 Miles/83km   Total climbs: 3,110 ft

Silver Route Overview

The Silver route will take you out to Monmouth and then back to Raglan, missing the dreaded hill at Lydart. Although not much different in length to the Gold Route, the main difference is in the 1000 feet of ascent. Once you pass through the square in Usk town, make your way to Usk Cricket Pavilion where there’ll be some well-earned refreshments waiting for you to enjoy before the final stretch along the River Usk to Caerleon and the Event Village.
