This year on the 60th anniversary of the event a group of riders are planning to do it all over again and we are going to be the main support vehicle for the entire run

If you like to be part of the run even if you only want to ride one section please get in contact with us. We also have limited room for for anyone who wants to come along that doesn’t have a bike. If you want to ride the entire route and need help to get you bike to the start and back home again at the end we might be able to help with that too
