RIDE Cymru 2017 will see for a 3rd year the return of the 'Cymru Kneivels' theme as we strive to raise the profile of a fun charity event, and raise as much money as possible for charity. This is not compulsory but if you wish to join the fun, riders need to provide their own Kneivel costume to wear over their gear. Costume details available on our facebook page.

If you wish to join us in 2017, You may wish to start asking friends and family to donate and sponsor you NOW in raising NOT ONLY the rider entry fee, but continue to raise even more for your own chosen charity or the event default charity which will be confirmed in September 2016.

RIDE Cymru riders who have in past events raised over £300 for charity are given special mention, and entrant requirements are relaxed on future events.

2017 - Thursday April 27th we leave from a new location from previous years - the welsh border village of Holt, in north east Wales. Located six miles east of Wrexham, Holt is situated alongside the River Dee and we depart at 8-30 am to commence the 5 day 1070 mile perimeter of Wales event. Each day will see RIDE Cymru continue its perimeter route with the added feature of visits & laps of the 3 Premier Motor Circuits of Wales, Llandow, Pembrey and Anglesey Circuits. Please pick which day suits you best and join us!! Day 2, 3 and 4 commence at 9am, and will include an average of 9 hours riding to our next destination. The evening destinations on our 2017 event will be Newport, Carmarthen, Aberystwyth & Holyhead. On our final day 5, the bank holiday Monday, we leave Holyhead at 10am and finish back at Holt at 4-30pm.

This is by no means a speed trip, we are not hooligans. Honest! We ride to promote a good name for motorcyclists. We ride in a controlled manner in a proven 'drop off' system. No riders are left behind, lost or stranded. We have a support vehicle to assist mechanical problems.

RIDERS are responsible for arranging their evening stops. A list of suggested campsites or B&B's are provided for each rider to plan their accommodation. We meet up later at each evening destination to share tales of the days ride.


...Our perimeter of Wales includes visits & laps of Llandow, Pembrey & Anglesey Circuits. Many thanks to the officials and management of all 3 circuits for kindly  continuing their support of RIDE Cymru.
In 2013, 2015, & 2016 our event included a meet up for a chat and pic opportunity with World record holder globe trekker Nick Sanders at his Expedition Centre!
