This is a pretty 1 day cycle ride weaving through the forests, valleys and valley towns of South Wales. We'll leave Cardiff via pretty Ty Mawr Lane by the Drenewydd Reen (for the Welsh speakers!) and, after passing Newport, continue our ride along the well surfaced Monmouthshire and Brecon canal towpath. 

After joining our Bristol riders for a well deserved lunch just outside Pontypool, we'll take an offroad cycle path up into the Brecon Beacons and onto Crickhowell. Our journey ends at the Green Man festival site!

The red fox team will carry your bags and festival kit in out 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.

What more convincing do you need?



Exclusive perks for our Green Man Riders:
