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.

Hoorah ... WRT 2011 is on!

That's right, the last Bank Holiday weekend in May will see Welsh Ride Thingers hitting the mountains of Mid Wales once more. I know it's a loooong way off yet but there's been a few eager folk in touch already, so I thought it only right to let everyone know the pain and suffering will continue next year!

No need to do anything rash, like get in touch. If you keep your eyes and ears open (here and Singletrack world would be good places) then you won't miss the boat ... which might be useful if the weathers anything like it was for the first day of last years WRT!


  1. I suppose I should get excited and say I can't wait, but I can.

    It will be great though :)

  2. I've almost convinced myself to do this . . . just trying to persuade someone to do it with me.
