In a nutshell, this is the most cool, calm, courageous and eco-conscious way to get to Green Man 2021! Imagine 2 days of glorious countryside cycling, a stunning overnight camp by the River Usk in South Wales and a lavish country pub dinner with a group of like-minded adventurers. And all this before you even arrive at the festival!

Setting off on Tuesday morning from Bristol Temple Meads, we'll cycle 35 miles each day (very achievable even for the moderately experienced cyclist) and take in quiet country lanes, pretty villages and beautiful vistas en route. No A roads or busy junctions. We'll set up camp in a wonderful campsite in Usk at the end of our first day and, after a well-deserved hot shower, wander into town for a mini pre-festival dinner party at one of the local ale houses.

The red fox team will carry your bags and festival kit in our support van. We'll also guide you, serve up tasty roadside snacks and drinks along the way and we can even bring you (and your bike) back home on Monday after Green Man.

As a huge pat on the back for 'travelling green' the Green Man team are offering access to the Green Man site a day early (on Wednesday), a free beer and fast track entry to the site!
