"Enjoying life outdoors"

The Big Outdoors (BOD), in association with 4x4 Adventures Ltd, is a bi-annual event, held in the Black Mountains to the North of Abergavenny. The first event was held over the weekend of the 5th-8th May 2016 with the second being planned for 13th-16th October 2016. The BOD is aimed at owners of any type of vehicle, whether a motorbike, a 4x4, an expedition truck, or even something more exotic. The common denominator will be a passion for travel and a love for the great outdoors, combined with a wish to meet and relax with like minded people. Places are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.
