About the Event
We’re excited to launch our very first Glamp Out festival of cycling and so much more …
Join PRiDE OUT this summer to meet friends, old and new at the UK’s first LGBTQIA+ owned and run glamping site in Somerset. ‘Base Glamp’ is positioned in a beautiful rural spot close to a quintessentially English hamlet, complete with thatched cottages and country pub. The site is on nine acres of stunning woodland, one hour drive away from Bristol.
We’ll be hosting a variety of optional bike rides to suit all abilities, ranging from 5-50+ miles exploring the gorgeous undulating green vistas of Somerset. This is a great chance to disconnect from day to days stresses, connect with nature and friends. You choose how you wish to spend the weekend, whether that be sunbathing, dipping in the hot tub, reading a book or of course getting out on the bike.
WHO'S ON WELCOME ON THIS EVENT?
In a nutshell, everyone, as long as they are respectul of other attendees. PRiDE OUT is an LGBTQ + cycling group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex and asexual/ace people. We also welcome allies.
