2017 - Thursday April 27th we leave from a new location from previous years - the Dee Crossing Bridge on Deeside, north east wales at 8am and we 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 Carmarthen, Aberystwyth & Holyhead. On our final day 5, the bank holiday Monday, we leave Holyhead at 10-30am and finish back on the Dee Crossing Bridge at 3pm.

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 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!
