About

On Saturday 26th May, the roads of Aberystwyth are closed for bike racing when the Ceredigion Grand Prix criterium hits town! The award winning course circumnavigates the iconic 19th century Old College, the 13th century Castle, the Victorian Pier and also brushes the town centre for what is a great day’s entertainment for all.

Whilst the professionals display their talents on the evening of the 26th, cyclists from as young as 8 years old also have their chance to race from 13.30pm with six separate schools races, followed by a Town & Gown fancy dress fun challenge for local adults and students. There is also a 4th category ‘GoRace’ for first time senior racers, a 3&4 Cat race, the new Storck |Women’s Grand Prix and finally the Ceredigion Grand Prix for E/1/2 category professionals and top amatuers. This means that well over 500 cyclists will be racing around the streets of Aberystwyth as part of the proceedings. This provides the backbone of the festival with everyone then able to watch top UK ranked pro riders race later whilst being catered for by the many café’s bars and restaurants around the course that stay open on the night.

Ddydd Gwener 26 Mai bydd ffyrdd Aberystwyth ar gau ar gyfer rasys beics, pan fydd criterium Grand Prix Ceredigion yn dod i’r dref! Mae’r cwrs arobryn yn cylchu’r Hen Goleg eiconig o’r 19eg ganrif, y Castell o’r 13eg ganrif, y Pier o Oes Fictoria a hefyd yn picio i ganol y dref ar ddiwrnod sy’n llawn adloniant i bawb.

Tra bydd y seiclwyr proffesiynol yn arddangos eu doniau gyda’r nos ar y 26ain, bydd seiclwyr mor ifanc ag 8 oed yn cael y cyfle i rasio o 2pm ymlaen, gyda chwe ras i ysgolion, ac yna her hwyliog y Dref yn erbyn y Brifysgol i oedolion lleol a myfyrwyr. Ceir hefyd ras ‘Go Race’ 4ydd categori i oedolion sy’n rasio am y tro cyntaf, ac yna criterium Glan Môr Aberystwyth i amaturiaid 2il a 3ydd categori, sy’n golygu y bydd dros 500 o seiclwyr yn rasio o amgylch strydoedd Aberystwyth yn rhan o’r digwyddiad. Dyma asgwrn cefn yr ŵyl, a bydd cyfle yn nes ymlaen i bawb wylio rhai o’n seiclwyr proffesiynol gorau yn rasio gyda’r hwyr, a mwynhau’r bariau, y caffis a’r bwytai o amgylch y cwrs a fydd wedi cadw’u drysau ar agor am y noson.
