|Where:||Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys from the Town Square|
|When:||A Saturday in mid-November|
This event comes from the same stable as bog-snorkelling, being introduced to the calendar by Gordon Green, inventor of new and unusual activities. The Real Ale Wobble is associated with the concurrent Mid-Wales Beer Festival and is basically a very arduous pub-crawl on ft or by bicycle over about 30 miles. The courses alter annually but are always through beautiful steep countryside with stops for beer consumption – it’s more of an endurance course than a competition.
The main event is on Saturday though a second go is available on the Sunday.
Anyone wishing to participate should be aware that it’s a serious bike-ride and should be suitably attired and equipped.
In 2016 it was on Saturday November 19th and Sunday 20th – 2017 dates have yet to be announced.
