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.

If your names not on the list you're not coming in.

Enteries for the best non-race of the year closed on Wednesday night. I've counted up and it looks like we've 52 riders this year with a good mix of solo riders, pairs and groups. The hills and mountains in mid Wales are pretty quiet even over the bank holiday ... but something tells me they might not be so quiet at the end of May.
Everyone who entered will get the grid references and map details at the end of April. Those that aren't riding will have to wait until after the event to see where they didn't go.
Late enteries may be allowed but it'll hinge on what you try and bribe me with!


  1. Hi Stuart,

    I expressed my interest by e-mail some time ago but have not received a response.......Am I on the list?
