summer GRAVEL campout in the green heart of wales

We're bringing Wild Cycles' signature approach to this unique adventure in Wales, so expect open fires, delicious local food, live music and a great atmosphere at basecamp in the evenings. Gravel rides lead out of basecamp in the foothills of Radnor forest and into spectacular mountain landscapes. Routes are designed to cater for a variety of abilities and preferences. Take your pick from a range of routes/distances on Saturday (40, 75 and 100kms). Sunday's a chilled 30km roller-coaster with plenty of opportunities to short-cut back to base.

everyone welcome

We want to create and foster an inclusive atmosphere at Wild Cycles events. As passionate cyclists we strongly believe that there is a huge lack of diversity in the sport at the moment. After an engaging fireside chat at Brother in The Wild Dorset last year, we set about thinking how we could help change this.

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.
