This event has a mandatory route - you should follow the route instructions as closely as possible.

4 commercial controls with food & drink at start control, penultimate and finish controls included in entry fee. Some fairly desolate roads, not many shops and it can get cold at night so please come prepared and have a memorable ride. Come unprepared and it could be even more memorable!
