Boot Inn,  Finish in Whitehall at 210k

There is a 2k off-road section along Jamestown Bog Road.

Don’t forgot  your lights, reflective gear and appropriate clothing for a winter spin. Bring a mask also.

Controls: Duleek 50k, Ardee 90k, Kilmessan 157k, Whitehall 210k.

This is a gently undulating route. Mainly on 3rd and 2nd 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.

  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.
