The Tour de Mon is a non-competitive cycle event held on Sunday 17th August 2014, which takes riders around some of the best views and roads the beautiful island of Anglesey has to offer. The event is organised by local events specialists, Always Aim High Events, and sets off from Newry Beach in Holyhead.

A women’s only wave is available within each of the sportive distances, with a female wave leader for each distance to make sure everyone is well supported. On top of that everyone in the women’s wave will get a massage voucher to relax the legs. Anyone wanting to enter the women’s wave just needs to select the “women’s wave” option on the online Tour de Mon entry page.

The sportive will once again includes it’s infamous sprint stage entitled the ‘Flying Mile’. The Flying Mile gives cyclists (on the Mawr, Canol and Bach routes) the opportunity to race against the clock for aperfectly straight, uninterrupted mile along the runway at RAF Valley.

This is the second time the Tour de Mon will take place and after the incredibly successful first year event in 2013 where over 1000 took part the 2014 event is set to be unmissable.
