On Sunday morning 130 cyclists from all over the UK gathered at Plas Heli in Pwllheli for the inaugural Llŷn Coastal Sportive.
The sun was shining as the cyclist set off on the 50 mile route around the coast of the Llŷn Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty. One of the first challenges facing the cyclist was the steep hill at Rhiw on which participants were timed and the fastest man, woman and junior crowned, King, Queen and Junior King/Queen of the Mountain. Llŷn Coastal Sportive’s inaugural Junior King of the Mountain Rhiryd ab Owain, 17 from Y Ffôr, a member of Dwyfor Cycling Club said: “Today has been a great day, I will defnietly be doing it again next year!”
Ken Skates AM, Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, attended the Welsh Youth and Junior Championships on 25th April and had an opportunity to visit the new Plas Heli building.
He could see how Plas Heli, the operating company for the Welsh National Sailing Academy and Events Centre, was placing Wales firmly on the World stage in international sailing events. He also saw how we are catering for grass roots entry to water sports, our excellent community engagement, how Plas Heli is embracing the Destination Management Plan and contrubuting substantially to the local economy.
He enthused about everything on offer and hopes to return for one of our international events in the summer.
He has a keen interest and experience with our sport that augurs well for the future.
