Llan to benefit from major cycling event



* Wiggle Etape Cymru entrants will register for the event in Llangollen.
 
Up to 1,200 cyclists will be heading into Llangollen in early September to register for one of the largest events in their annual calendar.
 
Wiggle Etape Cymru will take place on Sunday , September 8, starting from Bangor on Dee Racecourse and travelling through parts of Wrexham County Borough before entering Denbighshire through the Dee Valley.
 
Cyclists will be travelling through the Llantysilio, Pentredwr, Horseshoe Pass, Bryneglwys, Llandegla and Graigfechan areas, before returning to Wrexham county and heading for the finishing line back at Bangor on Dee.
 
But to enable Llangollen to benefit directly from the event, local county councillor Stuart Davies has successfully campaigned to have the registration process take place at Llangollen Pavilion.
 
He said: “This means that up to 1,200 entrants plus their entourage will be coming to Llangollen to sign up on the Friday and Saturday.
 
“The plan is that hopefully they will stay in Llangollen for the weekend and also eat out and do some shopping here.”
 
Cllr Davies is also aiming to arrange at special event – perhaps a fun day with a range of entertainment - at the pavilion on the Saturday where local people and visitors can be entertained and also informed about the attractions on offer in Llangollen.
 
Local businesses are also being invited to participate at the Pavilion on the Saturday to showcase their offerings, all to be organised by Denbighshire County Council.
 
Cllr Davies said he will be visiting businesses next week with county council officer Vicki Shenton Morris to give further details.
Meanwhile, he can be contacted on 07967 313792, or by e-mail at stuart.a.davies@denbighshire.gov.uk
As a result of the cycling event, roads in the affected areas will be closed.

Organisers Human Race, as well as Denbighshire and Wrexham Councils, are thanking people in advance for their co-operation and understanding.
 
Residents and businesses along the route will receive more information in the coming weeks, including details of road closures and timings.
 
Further details will be advertised in the local press and on the council's website: www.denbighshire.gov.uk.
