Below is a map to the campsite which will be the starting off point for all the routes.


The longest of our 3 ride routes the black mountains are tapped as one of the worlds best driving roads & we are lucky enough to have it right on our doorstep. The Black Mountain pass is 27 miles of long picturesque scenery, switch back twists with a total of 81 corners & takes you right thought the west side of the Brecon Beacons countryside. Whether you're looking for a roller coaster ride out or an idyllic scoot through the national park this view is pretty much unmissable! 


Llyn y Fan Fach, Brecon Beacons, Wales
Slightly off the beaten track as a possible stop off on this ride is Llyn y fan fact. Tapped by Redbull as one of the UKs best wild swimming spots Llyn y Fan Fach in the Brecon Beacons is supposedly it’s one of the most haunted bodies of water in Wales! Local legend says that at 2pm on the first Sunday in August, the ‘Lady of the Lake’ – rumoured to be a woman killed by her violent husband – emerges from the water. 

Find it: The lake is a bit of an uphill hike after parking up the bikes so be prepared . Brecon Beacons National Park, Llangadog, Carmarthenshire SA19


Dipping right down into the valley you will reach this absolutely stunning reservoir location by a ride through the most amazing twisty narrow countryside pine covered forest roads we've ever ridden.  a perfect place to stop off for lunch, with a traditional village (complete with traditional country pub for a quick pint) & beautiful waterfalls less than 10 minutes away theres alot to see when you reach Talybont on ask, but the ride there more than equals your destination. This is my favourite ride & even better is its perfect for big or small bikes. VC co founder Mai Storni will be leading the 125cc ride out there on Saturday so watch out for more details coming soon!!

Name: Dutch (Anthony “Dutch” Van Someren)


How was The Bike Shed started?

The Bike Shed started as a blog in 2011 by Dutch called Full Tilt, which then became the Bike Shed, with regular contributions from friends, Spirit of the Seventies, Untitled Motorcycles and Motorcycle Deluxe. The blog supported the underdog independent builder, and the intrepid shed builder. Over a year or so it grew into having a huge following, and realizing that we were bikers first and bloggers second (or third) we decided to transform the Bike Shed from a virtual experience into a real one, with our first independent motorcycle show in May 2013, celebrating the creative culture around new wave and cafe racer custom motorcycles. The shows mixed stunning bikes with great art, photography, food, independent retail, street food, coffee, beer and cocktails.

A second show followed in the same year and from then more shows followed, building to huge events at London’s Tobacco Dock and prime locations in the heart of Paris. In 2016 the Paris show attracted 6,500 people and the London show attracted 12,000.

In 2015 we decided to give up the day jobs and go full time with the Bike Shed. Our show visitors and website followers wanted us to have a full-time permanent space in the heart of London, so we borrowed a few quid, and set up a huge space in our original home, Shoreditch, with a club, restaurant, motorcycle showroom, art & photography gallery, event space and curated gear and apparel store. We have over 680,000 followers online with the largest independent custom motorcycle website in the world, and a home in London that welcomes over 300 visitors every week, with a thriving membership full of loyal friends and fellow bikers.

What is your position at The Bike Shed?

I am the founder, and technically I'm the CEO, but that sounds a bit corporate. I’d prefer to say I’m simply the man behind the concept working alongside friends and family to bring our vision to life.

What is the Bike Shed all about?

The Bike Shed is all about community, cooperation and a celebration of motorcycle culture, designed to bring like-minded people together and create an inclusive club vibe that constantly welcomes new people to this amazing scene.

Tell us about your connection to motorcycles.

I’ve been rinding since I was 17, passing my test in 1987. I’ve ridden every type of bike and owned more than the years I’ve been riding, but my favorite bikes are all European twins, especially KTMs. Triumphs and Ducati's. I currently own a custom Triumph T100, a custom Kawasaki W800 Flat Tracker and a custom Ducati PS1000LE, and I also ride a Harley 48.

What has been your best moto trip?:

My best Moto Trip is still going on right now. Riding with friends, creating a space in London that I travel to and from every day on a motorcycle, rides and adventures to events like Dirt Quake, The Malle Mile, Wheels & Waves, Motorbeach and our Bike Shed events.

How did you hear about Babes Ride Out?

Gemma is a friend, plus I’ve seen it on Facebook.

What makes you interested in supporting Babes Ride Out? 

I support the idea of celebrating women on bikes in an inclusive, empowering way, that shows women riders in a positive light, away from male dominated cliches.

What do you have in store for us at this years event?  

Lots of support from me and The Bike Shed.
