Race Name: TransWales
Like TransScotland, this is a division of TransUK.
Dates: August 14-21, 2010
How it started:
“This trend towards mass participation events for all levels of riders, enables people of varying abilities to overcome their barriers, achieving new personal goals and simply follow a healthy and active lifestyle. They also offer the chance to get away from it all, relax and have fun. With this in mind we have created the first ever ‘TransWales’ (2006) and are continuing running the TransUK in either Wales or Scotland. For 2010 the TransUK events are staying in Wales for the 4th ‘issue’ of the TransWales – 7 day long Mountain Bike stage challenge.”
Be sure to include number of stages, overall mileage, typical mileage per day, etc.
7 day stage race.
Rules, Categories, Pricing, Etc:

Pricing – three options; gold, silver, and bronze. from 375 to 475 to 575 Pound Sterling. (not sure of American dollar amount)
Food and Lodging:
options include tent sites, as you will be camping at a new spot each night. The TransWales will set up camp at visitor centres, camp grounds, farms and leisure centres along the way and will offer the competitors facilities to keep themselves as well as their equipment in order.
There will be showers, toilets and water at every over night stay. All your equipment (event holdall and tent) will be transported from location to location.
