This is a gently undulating route. Mainly on 2nd and 3rd class roads.
Lights and helmets are mandatory, and should be adequate to light your way on a dark country road. You cannot start without them.
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.

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.
I have my entry for Faceless Monk Dan. I can’t make it on he new date, i.e. 17/11. If Ronnie will agree, feel free to take my place there. Pawel.
How thoughtful Pawel even if I did post this 2 years ago. I might go with the flow and ask Chairman Mao
2018 Faceless Monk now on 17 Nov 2018.
Your Hyperlink to the Ride with GPS route map is not working, can you repost the link.
I dont see the photo of THE FACELESS MONK that is mentioned above that we have to lookout for. M
