everyone welcome

We want to create and foster an inclusive atmosphere at Wild Cycles events. As passionate cyclists we strongly believe that there is still a lack of diversity in the sport at the moment. 

That's why, we'd like to make 25 ring-fenced spaces at this year's Mountain Festival available for Women, Open Gender/Non-Binary, LGBTQ+ and *POC/BAME riders to attend. If you know anyone that would enjoy what the Wild Mountain Festival is all about, please reach out and share!

To access these tickets please responsibly use the link below.

*We understand that the terms POC and BAME do not necessarily serve all individuals within the diverse groups we are trying to reach with this, we're constantly learning and adapting our approach and language so please drop us an email if you have any feedback on the above.
