N2S – head north as far as you can go then turn around.

Already interest in this ride is hotting up with 1/2 dozen victims entrants so get in quick as I’ve a limit of 100.P5090027 (1)

As I said back in 2015

“North to the South – another bright idea of mine.  About the toughest 400km I’ve ever done.”

But the scenery is just breathtaking and ideally timetabled 2 weeks before the first 600 of the year and a month before the Celtic Knot.

It’s a (tiny) bit easier now as I changed the direction last year for ferry reasons so most of the climbing is over by 250km – just windy hill before Coleraine which has both wind and hill.

The Lake Isle of Innisfree (300 or 400) – entries open.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey, I hear it in the deep heart’s core

Two events running in parallel.  Remember – ACP rules only allow you to ride in one event at a time so no entering both or changing half way round.

N2S Test Ride 1

Richard Guthrie texted me this morning having successfully completed the new North to the South route organisers ride.  I will be taking his feedback on the route before finalising. I hope to get round myself starting this Friday pm so I’ll be doing the bits in the light he did in the dark.

In the “non competitive” spirit I will not be revealing his finish time, but I will say it was quicker than any of last years finishers by some margin.

So hopefully this indicates that the 2016 route is a bit less arduous**.

The new route includes a section of the WAW and crosses the peace bridge – so an ideal opportunity for you budding WAWA riders to practice your sprint finishes.

Looking forward to your entries.
