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.

If you enjoy reading about other peoples suffering as they go on their self propelled adventures then buy a copy of this. The Cordillera Volume 2 is a series of stories, pictures, etc about the Tour Divide.

I've not read volume 2 yet but volume 1 was a fantastic read with lots of different perspectives on what's often called the worlds hardest bike race. Profits from the sale of volume 2 are going to be donated to the family of Dave Blumenthal was was killed while taking part in last years TD.

You can buy Cordillera in either print format or as a download from the link below ... you won't be disappointed.
