THE ROUTE 

This is what it's all about......two mega-tough days of approximately 100 miles each day. The 2020 will take the best elements of the routes used over the last three years, and hopefully introduce a few new sections. Expect the usual mix of wild scenery and quiet roads with stunning backdrops......see our event website for more information about the route as we develop and finalise the final details.

THE LOGISTICS 

There is ample, free parking at the HQ for you to be able to leave your cars there for the weekend. At registration we will collect your overnight bag which we will transport to the accommodation at the University of Aberystwyth. 

On arrival, we will swap your bike for your bag and store until you set off again the next day. Accommodation at the university is in individual rooms with a shared bathroom for each corridor. Bedding and towels are provided. 

We will provide a hot buffet style evening meal and breakfast which is in a dining hall adjacent to the rooms - good for tired legs! In the morning, hand in your bag, collect your bike and do it all again. On arrival back at Ludlow Brewery there will be food provided and a well deserved drink!

See the event website for more details and FAQs.
