The weather will dictate conditions, so we can not say fairer than that, but in the true adventure spirit, a great weekend's riding will be had by all. As usual, nobody will be left behind. It is recommended that the minimum tyre required will be of TKC80, Karoo or MT21 standard. There is no road ride planned. The ride-outs will suit larger adventure style bikes (route 1 and 2), and also smaller trailbikes (route 3 and 4). This is not an enduro or race, under no circumstances will any bike display race numbers, crossed out or not, non negotiable! Riding standards are expected as described in the TRF Code Of Conduct. http://www.laragb.org/pages/trf-code.html We will be asking attendees to donate towards the Welsh Air Ambulance Service, who have attended to incidents involving riders at previous events. Minimum suggested donation is £10. http://www.walesairambulance.com/ Post #1 will be used as the updated noticeboard, please keep an eye on it for any news or information.

The trail rideouts are on public roads, both surfaced and unsurfaced, you must have your own insurance (third party cover at least) and your machine be road worthy and road legal. The ride outs are not guided, you are following a rider who is covering a route of his/her choice. You have the option not to follow, if you choose to follow, you are responsible for your own safety. Please ensure you wear the highest standard of protective equipment, eg, motocross type boots and gloves, full face helmet with googles, body armour, water resistant riding suit, etc. I'm sorry to have to mention all this, but the future of UK Advrider Rallies is in jeopardy due to liability issue if some body is severly injured or killed... God forbid!
