Great North Road

Description

400km cycling event starting from Cockerton, Darlington. Controls at Topcliffe, Askern, Belton, Welton, Skelton-On-Ure, Cockerton and Cockerton., plus 1 information control.

400 km including stretches of the Great North Road, the longest cycleable bridge in the world, and three lovely wooden-decked bridges. An ideal flattish first 400, or it'll do the job for PBP qualification.

Accommodation available (for a small fee) in the hall beforehand, food at the start and finish, and three full-service controls en route (Topcliffe, Welton and Skelton), plus campervan control with snacks at Caldwell. This ride will be for you if you like: bridges, canals, cooling towers, mostly flat roads and lots of pretty churches. This ride may not be for you if you don't like: village hall controls, the occasional A-road stretch but mostly quiet lanes, Yorkshire, and bridges. There are a lot of bridges.
