Event Summary

Yoga and cycling are like apples and cheese; a perfect pairing, wouldn’t you say?

In a repeat collaboration from 2021 with the brilliant Brixton Yoga, we’re involved once again in their yoga retreats this August, 2022.

But this time we both bring more to the party - tickets include a curated selection of our very best Adventure Uncovered Film Festival films with campfire/marshmallow vibes, outdoor swimming, live music, and great food!

If you love nature and the outdoors blended in with cycling, yoga, films, music and swimming, the weekend for up to 50 people will reinvigorate the soul. Guaranteed. Mark up your calendars now!

Shalyn Wilkins

Since joining her first Brake the Cycle trip, Shalyn has been hooked on adventuring by bike. Having now converted countless friends and family (and sometimes even strangers) to the joys of biking, Shalyn joins us to lead rides and share her infectious enthusiasm for exploring by bike, opportunistic yoga, sharing good food and camping under the stars. It's also quite possible that Shalyn holds the record for the most puncture-repairs in a calendar year - so we're glad to be in experienced hands.
