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.
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.

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.
** Or just confirms Richard is really quick!
