VELOTHON Wales is offering the local Usk community the chance to find out more about this year’s event at an engagement evening on Monday 26 February.

The people of Usk will be brought right up to date with event details and will have an opportunity to pose questions to organisers from 18:00-19:00 at County Hall.

On the agenda will be an update on this year’s trio of routes including the latest information on road closures that will be in effect on Sunday 8 July. The community, who will once again be at the heart of the race, can also find out how they can get involved when thousands of cycling enthusiasts pass through the town.

Riders and spectators were blown away by the efforts last year as the Great Usk Bike Off transformed the town. An exciting announcement will be made as Monmouthshire County Council and VELOTHON Wales aim to build on the success of last year’s event.

A question and answer session will take place with a representative from event organisers Run 4 Wales, so feel free to come down and find out more. If you cannot attend, the VELOTHON Wales engagement event will be streamed live on the MonmouthshireCC YouTube channel.
