Costume details available on our facebook page.

RIDE Cymru is a charity motorcycle rideout around the roadway perimeter of Wales, in the past a distance of 1000 Miles... The 2017 event is shorter at 600miles.. This is by no means a speed trip, the nature of the task means very rare A roads, the luxury of the odd B road and plenty of back lanes dictating a total journey time of 9 hours motorcycling per day, and circuits aside, an average speed of 27mph over the whole trip.

RIDERS are responsible for getting themselves and their motorcycles around the route. A list of suggested campsites or B&B's are provided for each rider to plan their accommodation. We travel as a group, and we meet 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 oficials and management of all 3 circuits for kindly supporting 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!
