Permaculture & Cycling Mini Adventure

May 31st - June 2nd, Ragmans Lane Farm and the Wye Valley

 

Brake The Cycle and the Permaculture Association are collaborating to bring you a brand new thing in 2019: cycle-powered adventures in permaculture design!

What is Brake The Cycle?

Brake the Cycle provides transformative experiences through cycling. We’ve been visiting ecovillages and exploring sustainability projects while discovering alternative ways of living along the way since way back in 2011. Discover more.

Permaculture and Brake The Cycle | Why We’re Partnering Up

Right from the get-go, Brake The Cycle was designed with principles of permaculture in mind thanks to co-founder and permaculture enthusiast Joe Reid. Ever since the early days we’ve enjoyed a great relationship with the Permaculture Association, and this year we’re taking this to a whole new level!

 

We’re passionate about permaculture and believe hands-on teaching at inspirational sites across the UK is the best way to share the love, especially with new converts. But did you know physical adventure is proven to stir up the imagination and facilitate good conversation, too? We did, which is why we’re confident Brake The Cycle and the Permaculture Association will collaborate fruitfully for many more “cycles” to come!

 

In 2019 we’re enthusiastically exploring ways to weave together cycle touring and permaculture design, starting with our brand new Permaculture and Cycling Mini Adventure.

Permaculture and Cycling | A Mini Adventure in All Things Permaculture!

Brake The Cycle’s Mini Adventures are long weekend rides ideal for those with less time to commit to a full length adventure. Think of this as a short getaway from work for a few days to meet like-minded people whilst mentally and physically challenging yourself on a breathtaking, memorable and exhilarating ride.

Permaculture & Cycling is a 3 day cycle tour of the Wye Valley with a permaculture twist! This Mini Adventure includes 2 days accommodation at Ragmans Lane, one of the UK’s most inspirational permaculture sites, coordinated in partnership with the Permaculture Association. You’ll get to explore this 60 acre organic farm whilst enjoying a full day’s world class teaching from Ragmans Lane founder Matt Dunwell.

In fact over the 3 days we’ll weave all the components of the Intro to Permaculture Design short course into our programme, which makes Permaculture & Cycling perfect for permaculture enthusiasts old and new!
