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.

T, T, S and S Part 4 ... Six Moon Designs.

While searching the internet for something I payed a visit to Six Moon Designs. I haven't been to their web site in a while so it was a nice surprise to find their new 'tent' the Skyscape.

Skyscape Scout

The Skyscape is a double skin 1 man tent. It pitches with a single pole and has more than enough internal size to sit up and even the tallest will be able to lie down without contacting the tent walls. What's interesting is the fact that the same tent is available in 3 different guises, just factor weight against cost to determine which is right for you.

The heaviest version is the Scout and it weighs 960g ... yes that's right, 960g and it's the heaviest model! At the top of the tree is the 'X' which although the same size weighs a silly light 450g!

All 3 models are available to pre-order (you won't get one in time for the WRT though) and both the Scout and the middle model Trekker (680g) have special pre-order pricing with the scout coming in at $90 and the Trekker $175 ... that really has to be a bargain and remember those prices are $ not £.

If you're on the look out for a light, 1 man shelter that should stand whatever nature throws at it, go and have a look at and yes, they do other things too.
