Room booked at the local Premier Inn for Thursday night. PM me if you want the 'couch'. (I'm doing the 1000 and will be riding up from Bristol on the Thursday)

Thanks to all those that have entered. A quick update: the event info' and provisional route-sheet will be ready within the next week to 10-days. A couple of different versions for the stage between Fort Augustus and Inverness are being put together. I suspect most riders will do the circuit. Either direction is OK!

I've had a couple of queries asking when the event info' and provisional route-sheet will be issued. I'm away this weekend but it should be ready within a week.

Entries still open but heading towards 100.

Hi Andy, any more confirmation and details  on the route ?

Just 8 weeks to go and I have to say I am bloody nervous ... had a bad cold for the last few weeks and finally better and just one calendar and one diy to go ( diy is around 480km) ....

Full of doubts but full of hopes !

Route on its way to you and will be with you before 24 May (I go away that day)!

Just to confirm after a couple of queries also that the event doesn't follow a mandatory route, so you can use whatever roads you fancy so long as you visit all the controls in the correct order. Obviously, on some points of the route, particularly in Scotland, there'll only be one sensible route to follow between control points. This applies to both events.

Quick update: Everybody who's entered should have had an email sometime over last weekend; but for those that don't know already I've managed to secure the use of the bunk-house at the start control for use the night before the event (Thursday 04 July). I can now offer entrants a room for the night before the event for an additional charge of £12.70. There's about 50 beds in total!

More details on the event website at: https://burnleyccevents.com/inverness-1200-05-july-2019/

Event info' and route-sheet on its way within the next few days. The same applies to the Fort William 1000!

Transfer done Ian! I'll be sorting out the camping options this week before I go off on holiday on Friday. I think the camping options might work out more expensive than the bunk bed options.

As Ian said, all those that entered should have by now received their provisional event information.

The route instructions still need 1 or 2 amendments so have been withheld for another 2 weeks as I'm currently away on a cycling holiday.

For those that don't know already overnight (bunk) accommodation in the event HQ is available for the night before the event (Thursday 04 July) for an additional charge of £12.70 (see event website for further details - link attached below).

Camping will also be available for an additional charge of £4 per night which will be payable on the day.

There'll be an event jersey available for purchase soon, typically costing £35 - £45 each. More details when I return from holiday next Sunday.

We've just about reached the limit on entries but with a few already dropped out I'll allow a few more in so entries are still open at present (see AUK calendar webpage for further details - link attached below).

Hope all your training is going well.

The same applies to the Fort William 1000 ride.

I've had a couple of emails this week from people asking whether there's any bunk beds in the HQ left for the night before the event. The answer is yes there's about 15 left.

Everyone who's entered should have had their provisional event information emailed to them by now. If not please let me know ASAP. The final route sheet will be issued within the next 2 weeks.

The jersey design is now complete. We've agreed on a design with Ben Nevis on the front and Blackpool Tower on the back, and of course the AUK logo. Entrants should be able to order jerseys sometime this coming week. Copies of the design can be downloaded on the event website. Link below:

As usual, the same applies to the Fort William ride.

So I am trying to plan now and thinking of doing Paisley to Inverness in one go ... so to confirm on likely route I am guessing that no real 24 hour services etc ??? So I would need to get enough food etc to last me until 7/8 am ?

I'm sure there are 24-hour garages in Fort Bill.
