The WRT has moved. If you're looking for info, entries or anything else bikepacking related try Bear Bones Bikepacking, the Bear Bones blog or the Bear Bones forum - ta.

Yea, yea, yea, but what is it?

The WRT is a 3 day and perhaps more importantly 2 night ride through and around mid Wales. You'll be expected to be self sufficient, carrying everything you need and sleeping out in or under whatever you think best. It's not elitist, entry is open to anyone who wants to try it. All the money raised by the WRT goes to the Wales Air Ambulance charity ... an organisation I hope you'll never need.

Grid References are out!

Well that's it then, the grid references and map details for the 2010 Welsh Ride Thing have gone out this afternoon. If you're on the list but haven't had the email and pdf then firstly check your spam folder and if it isn't there then email me and we'll get it sorted.
So you've now got a month to work out a route, panic, do it again and so on and so forth. If you've never slept under the stars or ridden with a fully loaded bike then it might be worth having a trial run during the coming weeks too. Good Luck.


  1. A nice selection Stuart, some really great trails to be ridden there :)

  2. Glad you like them. Judging by the STW forum it looks like people have been busy already ... average route distance seems to be around 125 miles or 195K.

  3. 200km for me...passing some Bothies I see. Guess they might be full on a bank hol weekend though :)
