Llanbaodoc Community Council has been informed that the 'Tour of Britain' cycle race will be coming through Usk and Llanbadoc on 2nd September 2018.
Information from the organisers ...
OVO Energy Tour of Britain, the UK’s most prestigious and spectacular cycle race, will be coming to Pembrey County Park through to Newport for Stage One on the 2nd September.
I wanted to share more information about the event so that you can begin to plan any promotion or involvement that you would like to have in your Parish and Borough’s.
The stage will ride through the centre of Carmarthen, skirt the north-west corner of the Brecon Beacons before cutting through via Talybon-on-Usk falling just short of Abergavenny and straight down into Newport.
Below are some useful links and information that will enable you to find out more about the race and hopefully promote the event to your family, friends, colleagues and people in your town. We’d love to see everyone getting involved and as we pass through many parishes, it’s your chance to show the world just how beautiful every inch of Wales is.
