- Info for Riders:
- It’s far from an easy day out and is a challenge requiring fitness and commitment. Given the topography of the area it’s a long loop with no shorter variant – so it is committing. Much of the route is on high and open country so the weather will form part of the challenge and when it’s wild up there it’s very wild, even in mid-summer. So think carefully about your equipment and clothing; bring the clothes and spares you need.
