How it works

This year the event features a core of social components which include a film/talk, workshop and group social ride/picnic (food included) alongside other drop in advice stations. Coaching sessions and yoga are available from our coaching partners as additional tickets that may be purchased alongside the main entry ticket. Coaching at the event would not be possible without the support of our coaching partners who offer these sessions at these special event rates to help us promote and encourage women’s mountain biking. We hope that women will use the event for a taste of what coaching can offer. All our partner coaches websites can be reached on the links provided in their coaching bios below.

Please read browse the available course options, then we recommend you write down the courses you’d like to do for each session time (including their session code identifier) and if possible, choose backup options. Individual course participation numbers are very limited and places are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. If you don’t see your desired course option tickets available it may be because that course has already sold out.

Full information of where to meet for courses/session will be sent by email closer to the event.

Please remember that to join these coaching sessions you will also need to purchase the Tetiwr main event entry ticket.

For any questions please contact Dyfi Events Admin: mail@dyfievents.com
