Due to the potential of continued inclement weather, the Aber Cycle Fest organisers in conjunction with Pearl Izumi Tour Series organisers have amended the circuit for this evening’s Round Four.

Organisers have considered the safety of spectators, staff and competitors in all events and as a consequence have adjusted the circuit.

The revised Aberystwyth circuit runs clockwise from a start/finish location on Pier Street, turning right onto Great Darkgate Street and then right into Castle Street.

The route then turns left onto King Street outside the Old College onto King Street before turning right back onto the New Promenade. The final corner will be the right hander from the New Promenade on to the now uphill drag to the finish line on Pier Street at the junction with New Street.

At just under one kilometre the circuit will be now be focussed on the sheltered town centre.

Due to the forecasted high tide this evening the start time of The Pearl Izumi Tour Series Round Four will also be brought forward to 6.30pm.

The Aber Cycle Festival continues over Saturday and Sunday with downhill mountain biking making its debut in Aberystwyth on what is possibly the perfect setting for such a race – Constitution Hill.

Sunday sees the new Welsh Wild West Sportive, with a choice of three routes in the beautiful Ceredigion countryside.
