I doubt I'll be entering this year's edition, sadly.

Have done the E&W coasts a few times. A pretty easy 600 depending on the weather ;-)

I've entered this plus the Yorkshire via Essex the week after. Whether I'm riding depends upon my 14yo's race commitments - at present it's likely to be just one of these but we're not sure which.

The E&W/3 Coasts goes almost past my house at 50/320km so is easier logistically.

Did this last year as my pre-qualifier. You can have two seaside chippy teas in one ride which is the main selling point of this IMHO.

Three seaside chippys if you include the café at Glasson Dock :-)

I still finished. Even if I was full-on John Wayne walking afterwards....!  ;D

I’m in. It’s relatively easy if you don’t get the hairdryer headwind  on the return from Brid and can tackle the few lumps between Preston and Mytholmroyd.

I first rode The Three Coasts in 2005, and made a short film.

I last rode the East & West Coasts in 2015, and made a short film.

Many people like to have a moan about the Howardian Hills.

My thanks to Chris for what was a tough ride in windy conditions. Hopefully everyone made it round safely, even if they didn't finish: I passed a lot still going outbound on the West leg well into the ride. https://www.strava.com/activities/2455720334
