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.

More Scouting ... dib dib dib

A few pictures from this weekends grid reference scouting. You may or may not find yourself in the location of the pictures, obviously it'll all depend on your individual route. I'm sorry to say I didn't quite break the magic 2000ft barrier today. I think I was short by around 250ft, so it would be slightly unfair to call it mountain biking ;o)

Just needs a few slates and pointing

It was very, very dark in there

The Waltons weren't at home

Believe me ... it's a long pull up from the far valley bottom

Yes, it is all downhill from here


  1. Last 2 shots in particular look great.....however I couldn't help noticing that it's also looking a little bumpier than last year!

  2. It has to be said ... there are some ups. I've got to go and look at a certain 'bumpy' bit this week, I reckon it's a killer ;o)

  3. looks great I hope the weather is as good in May Stu!!

    I am in ascent trainig from now on!!

  4. Descent and altitude training wouldn't be a bad idea either!
