Red Kite Easter Bash Testimonials
” My Wife and I rode the Red Kite Easter Bash last year, both of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The ride was well thought out and took in some of Mid Wales’ finest riding and views. A worthwhile start to the year’s riding and looking forward to this year’s event.” Nick Shenston.
“The Red Kite Easter bash ride was great! The route was long enough to make it a good day ride with the added bonus of some great single track and technical descents all set in some stunning Welsh countryside.” Anthony Pease
