Cyclists from as young as 8 years old also have their chance to race in Aberystwyth Town Centre. Race day starts at 10am with various races for local primary school children, followed a race for beginner ladies, and then a Fancy Dresss Parade. Finally the Welsh Circuit Race Championships will be held throughout the afternoon and evening. This means that well over 500 cyclists will be racing around the streets of Aberystwyth in total! These races are the backbone of the festival with everyone then able to watch the action for free whilst being catered for by the many café’s bars and restaurants around the course that stay open on the night.
