Route Description:

South towards KING WILLIAMS GLEN via DROMIN, TINNURE, MONASTERBOICE, and OLD MELIFONT.  Crossing the BOYNE from KING WILLIAMS GLEN head south back to WHITEHALL calling on DONORE, DULEEK, ARDCATH, GARRISTOWN, NEWEBARN, ST MARGARETS and back to WHITEHALL (Finish)205K

Lights and helmets are mandatory, and should be adequate to light your way on a dark country road.   You cannot start without them.

It is a self-supporting event so be prepared.

There are info controls so bring a pen.  The info controls will require walking on uneven surfaces and in one case down a set of steps.  ***Be warned those of you wearing std road shoes without recessed shoe plates ! ***

You will be travelling some narrow twisty roads which can be treacherously greasy on the bends and in some parts have poor road surfaces.  Those using narrow, semi slick high pressure tyres  take note.

This is a rolling route with a few hills.

Attached is a photo of THE FACELESS MONK.  Take a good look because you will be looking for him at one of the info controls !

    1. I have been informed by a friend that the Faceless Monk is full. I didn’t realise there was a limit for rider numbers on this event?? Can someone clarify this so I can arrange a permanent with a few more riders for elsewhere. Thanks Dan.
