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.

Breaking news just in!

It would appear that the poly tarp experiment is over. First reports point towards a frontal collapse, possibly due to fatigue. Obviously a full investigation will need to be carried out before we can be certain of the chain of events that led to today's disaster. Eye witness reports indicate that no one was injured in the catastrophe, although rescuers are still searching the remains for 2 squirrels who are as yet unaccounted for.

The devastating devastation from today's devastating disaster!!!!

Yori Plas from the farm down the lane, witnessed today's events and had this to say, "We've had some rain and some wind but the thing had been fine for 4 days, what happened today was a total surprise".

More news as we get it from the disaster scene!


  1. "still searching the remains for 2 squirrels who are as yet unaccounted for"

    Where they spit-roast over an open wood fire or griddled on a MYOG coke-can burner??

  2. Looks a bit like flatfish's tarp from a couple of weeks back ;)

  3. I'm thinking nothing a little duct tape won't fix!

  4. Can you use the remains as fuel for the MKettle?
