Bikepacking Wales

TweetSix months of waiting. Six months of hoping for good weather. Six months of wondering if any one of us would pull the plug and ruin it all.

Bikes were ridden. A new bike. Runs were ran. With new people. Full team membership on the mountain rescue team was attained. With joy. Ecstatic… Read more →
