Last-minute update

The weather gods are not smiling on us this year, but we’re going ahead as promised “rain or shine”.  We’ll understand if you opt out, or decide to do one of our shorter routes. Whatever you choose, you’re welcome to join us for the meal at the finish.  We’ll be serving between noon and 5PM.

Course marking is going to be problematic. We’ll do our best to keep you on course and not lost.  


Three suggestions  

  • Do not ride alone.

  • Follow your cue sheets carefully. Route arrows and other  markings may be obscured, missing or washed away.

  • We recommend that you load the route/s below onto your phone or cycle computer device.
