Moonrakers & Sunseekers 300 22:00 27th November 2020

I am working to get Moonrakers & Sunseekers 300 up and running for this year on 27/28 November. Obviously the format will be slightly different but I hope it'll still have a similar feel.

Start times will be staggered in groups of 6 max (currently) and will be wrapped around 22:00. The start will be outside in a park (tbc) close to the advertised Business as Usual. The finish will be posting brevet cards through my letter box; sorry no tarka dal this time!

At the moment Lilliput Sea Scouts isn't an option in Poole so half way won't be as warm; as such the Devizes, Amesbury & Poole controls will all be outdoor take away affairs. In general you should consider being more self supported carrying any extra food you might require. Cakes should be available at Devizes & Amesbury, hot drinks at Amesbury & Poole and hot food at Poole. The last 2 controls will be the usual comercial venues by which time the rider field should have spread out more.

As we are witnessing guidelines could change rapidly affecting event viability. Therefore I have implemented a simple booking form for those seriously considering taking part. No money is required but please only use if you are willing to confirm by payment closer to the time should government guidelines and AUK's position allow the event to take place. I'm collecting names and email to contact later should the event be viable; plus your riding speed and faff level to help in my group planning, plus dietary requirements for provided food. No login is required, one booking per email address.

Any other questions please contact me; if they benefit everyone then as a comment below, or DM or Email.

Stay safe!

Sounds interesting,  is the following interpretation correct? the same overnight controls will have food provided
No inside space at any control

The actual controls will be in different locations but overall the route is the same. And yes no indoor facilities at the mo unless anything changes. Public toilets will be identified.

**UPDATE**

Assuming the event is able to run all those that have pre-booked are guaranteed a place. Uptake has been good.

There will come a time when booking doesn't guarantee a place but you will be added to a waiting list on a first come first served basis.

Not for me this year but if Bristol is accessible for you I'd recommend this as a cracking ride.  Last year. the section from Cheddar to the final control was a bit of a mud bath so if you don't fancy getting your bike mucky it might be worth plotting an alternative route along the roads, which won't add too much to the distance.
Why should anybody steal a watch when they can steal a bicycle?
