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.

Something to suit everyone.

I came across a couple of interesting things while I was out today. You stand a fair chance of coming up against one of them on this years WRT ... I think you'll be (un)lucky to find the other one!

A picture doesn't really do this justice, when I say it's steep I do mean steep. There are 148 steps in total and quite a few switchbacks like the one in the picture ... it is quite mad!

Hopefully you should be able to make out the zig zag track in the picture. The track in question would appear to be about the only way to cross the ridge. For a sense of scale, all the trees you can see are fully grown! It was one hell of a climb to get above it.
