The Mediofondo route starts at Marlwood School, Alveston, near Bristol. The ride will start at 8.45am
Marlwood School is ideally situated in a quiet, rural area with instant access to the route that all riders will take to reach Aust and the Severn Bridge.
After leaving the school, you will join the B4661 which takes you directly to the Severn Bridge, which you will cross to go to Chepstow.
After passing through Chepstow, you will take the beautiful road towards Raglan. The road starts with a climb up to the village of Devauden before dropping back down on a scenic road that undulates all the way to Raglan.
After leaving Raglan, you will head towards Abergavenny on the B4598, running parallel to the A40. This is a pleasant stretch of road with little traffic.
Just before reaching Abergavenny, you will join the A40 for about 1 mile as you head into town. In the centre of town, next to the Bus Station is the first feed stop. Decent public toilets are located close to the feed station.
