Wales360

Wales360 is a new mountain bike event that will challenge riders physically and mentally – it is likely to be the hardest event most will have ever done. Cycling 90-100 kilometres or more and climbing up to 2,500m on predominantly off-road terrain in a single day is hard. Backing this up for six days on the trot will require incredible stamina and determination, but also restraint and the ability to find a good rhythm.

Ever present will be the breath-taking scenery of Mid and North Wales and some of the finest views the UK has to offer. Each night you will be accommodated within the Wales360 camp, with all of your accommodation, food and beverage provided, including plenty of food and drink from local suppliers in the heart of Wales. There will be opportunities to build new enduring friendships and you’ll leave with memories to cherish for a lifetime. Wales360 will be a real adventure.
