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 Pembrey & Anglesey Circuits. Many thanks to the officials and management of all 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!
