BIKE RIDE ABOUT?
A bike race, self supported endurance bike ride with a difference. There's no set route, 5 checkpoints and 25 waypoints along the way. Make your own route via road, gravel, dirt or sand.
Get to each checkpoint, take a time stamped photo with coordinates at each waypoint as quick as you can. Checkpoints will be released before the race, with waypoint coordinates released just before May 2024.
WHAT BIKE DO I
It's completely up to you, a road bike or TT bike would be fast as f**k but can it carry your supplies? Some of the waypoints may be at a reach via gravel, dirt or sand; can those scrawny 25mm tyres cope?
Being a self supported ride, no entrants can have the benefit of a support car but can refill on supplies at any store or coffee shop. You can even pre book your accommodation if you like but who wants to waste money on a comfy bed when you're riding against the clock? Just sleep in your sleeping bag and get back on the road ASAP! Wrap up warm ;)

Cycling since 2020 and loved it ever since, ridden over 20,000km since then including a few multi day rides. I did attempt the GB Divide route in 2021 though I couldn't complete the 2,000km due to injury, but on those long 15 hour days in the saddle I came up with the idea to this event.
I run my own Marketing Agency by day, Red Squirrel Marketing and then head to the gym, jump on the bike or a squash court to stay fit. I can't wait to see how everyone get's on with this route, and look forward to seeing all the riders at the start line.
