Bikes and Tyres

The “500” series of events have been specifically designed for the bigger adventure bikes and the Adventure Spec Wales 500 course has been created with this in mind. The course 100% suitable for dual sport tyres. The organisation team will have ridden all the course prior to the event to check its suitability.

Fuel and Range

The Adventure Spec Wales 500 is in a remote part of the UK and the bikes taking part will need a range of 160km (100 miles) on a single tank of fuel. Most of the big adventure bikes are capable of this. All fuel stops will be at commercial filling stations and marked on the roadbook.

Roadbook Holders

These will be available to hire from RallyMoto – please request this on your entry form.


Accommodation – if you don’t fancy camping!

Camping will have to be paid as an additional item for the Adventure Spec Wales 500. There is additional accommodation in the nearby town.


The entry fee includes a meal on the Saturday evening and also on the Sunday evening. Additional places can be ordered on the entry form. Once out on the course riders will have to be self sufficient and should carry water and food. There will be a few opportunities to buy food en-route.






Special ‘Zero Hero’ trophies will be awarded to riders in Adventure Class who complete the weekend of rallying without scoring any points for navigation errors or over speeding.
