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.

Worlds heaviest shelter?

While out riding on Monday I came across this. There's plenty of room inside for sleeping and even cooking. It'd certainly keep the worst of the weather at bay.

Nearly enough room for 2.

There must be loads of these all over the country. Just think of the weight saving advantages if you knew where they all were!

Natural Shelter at it's best.


  1. Where's that then?

  2. It would be on a track between Barmounth and Tal y Bont. If you were heading for a certain, famous bridge you'd come across it ;o)

  3. Got it, thanks. Cap stone weighs about 10 tonnes, apparently...
