We always wanted riding bikes to be a big part of the festival. Whilst our workshops and speakers will help to inspire, our rides will induce a grin.  In partnership with various contributors and brands, we have put on a number of rides and have tried to keep them in line with the event's adventurous spirit. Rides range from a small demo loop within Brathay's grounds to a fully fledged gravel event as well as self-guided rides. There should be something for everyone.
