The Dragon Ride is based at Margam Park, Port Talbot, South Wales, SA13 2TJ. The what3words location of the entrance gate is https://w3w.co/expiring.jelly.hack. On Sunday 19th June, please follow the signs for Margam Park from Junction 38 off the M4. If you are being dropped off and collected, there are designated areas within the Park for this. Please follow the flow of traffic and the stewards will direct you to the right place. Please do not try and access via any other gate or drop off elsewhere. This is to prevent queues backing up behind you and Riders will be leaving from other designated gates so entry will not be permitted.
There will be free car parking available at Margam Country Park. Car parking is limited. For this reason and for environmental reasons too, please do car share wherever possible. Please follow the signed route from the Main Gate to the car parks, and then from there by bike/foot to the start area. The event car parking is situated a few hundred metres from the start/finish area.
For those requiring a drop off location, follow directions By Road above and carry on driving through the car park to the designated location. Then follow the exit signs/directions from parking stewards. Please do not try and access via any other gate or drop off elsewhere. This is to prevent queues backing up behind you and Riders will be leaving from other designated gates so entry will not be permitted.
If you are coming by rail, there are 2 stations close by, Port Talbot Parkway & Pyle, both within 5 miles of the site (Pyle is approximately a 15 minute cycle from the station and Port Talbot Parkway approximately 25 mins).
You can purchase train tickets via Train Hugger where every time you book a ticket, they plant a tree. Book your tickets here.
If you are cycling to the site, please come into the park via the East Gate and not the Main Gate that the cars will be using. The closest postcode is SA13 2TL and what3words location is https://w3w.co/social.craziest.verbs This will be the quickest route in for those on bikes and will help to keep vehicle movement flowing freely into the park in order to get everyone in on time. Please ensure you keep left at all times.
