British Cycling Grading:
This event has been graded using data collected by Map My Ride
Info for Riders:
For the 4th edition of the Dash we have moved the event from April to June and changed the event from a reliability ride to a sportive. This has allowed us to do away with cumbersome paper entries and use the BC online entry system.

Cost of entry £15 (£14 + £1 admin).

Entry to ride A is open to ages 14+ and ride B 16+. All entrants under the age of 18 must contact the organiser for a parental consent form to be completed prior to the event.

The event does not have electronic chip timing.

As in previous years Edmondbyers Village Hall will be used as a checkpoint (twice for Route B) and provide sandwiches, fruit, snacks and drinks.
