Back for 2021. Connoisseurs will notice some differences - Mike's isn't available. He's nearly finished renovating the old millhouse, it's probably too posh for us now.

But a start in Northallerton means it's pretty close to 100 km, rather than being a bit over-distance, and we can skip the soggy lowland tracks, which is probably a good job in March.

It's selling fast - nearly half full already, so get an entry in if you do want to ride.


amended start date - now Monday 3rd May 2021

I'm probably going to be landed with a massive royalty bill for the Prague Philharmonic's rendition of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker (excerpt thereof). Or maybe it was the Augustines.

Anyway - enough of this - enter Deano's ride, readers - it's mentaaaaaaaaaalll.

It clashes with the 3Bs! Probably fair enough from Eano’s perspective mind

Maybe in 2022 - this is very highly recommended

Rejigged the start date - now it's Mayday. Currently I'm not planning on taking amy more entries (I warned you, it sold out fast), but a few folk might not be able to make the rearranged date, so it's possible that I could sneak some more in.

The weather put a few folk off, and I can't really blame them. I had 14 starters in the end, and 13 finishers. He did survive, but seems to have had more of an adventure than riding back would have been.

On the plus side, all the DNSs mean I've got a bit of surplus cash, and I'll make a donation to my local food bank (once I work out how to, there isn't a big obvious DONATE button)
