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.

WRT ... The Finish.

Waking up on Monday morning was just like waking up on Saturday morning ... only the weather was worse. High winds and rain were still present but as with Saturday, as the morning went on the weather started to improve. With that improvement came a steady trickle of returning riders. By midday that had changed into a flood of riders, all eager to grab a brew and stuff their faces with cake.

It was fantastic to see so many smiling faces. Some might have been smiling due to the relief of being home safe and sound, for others the smiles were proof of their achievements ... all were great to see.

Kevin ... ALL 15 GR and just about to ride 25 miles home!

How much cleaner this had been 2 days earlier.

No shortage of sheep shit on display.

Tea is the best recovery drink known to man.
