Notorious for its “death march” sections, historically the Bear Bones 200’s relatively short distance carries a lot of punch. Expect the same in 2017…

The Bear Bones 200 is an endurance bikepacking individual time trial with no support or route marking.

The route is still to be finalized but a distance of around 200km is anticipated with the majority being ‘off road’. The Cambrian mountains provide a spectacular backdrop, so you can expect remote tracks, steep valleys and some of the biggest views in all of the UK. Based on previous editions of this event, riders can also expect a fair bit of hike-a-bike over rough and often boggy terrain with about 20,000ft of climbing thrown into the mix.

    yup, don’t be fooled by the short distance.
    sometimes size doesn’t matter.
    take the welsh hills, add a little BB sauce, a sprinkle of welsh weather and one has the makings of an epic.
