For those of you still hoping to enter the Brownstuff 400, the last real opportunity to get a long ride in before PBP, I’ll be accepting entries at the meeting in Mullingar on Saturday.
If you can’t make the meeting, but would like to ride the event that makes PBP look like a leisurely coffee shop spin, I’ll accept entry via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) up until Tuesday evening.

Final preparations for the Celtic Knot brevets are underway. The route for the 600k (which is also the first 600k section of the 1000k brevet) is final.
I am hoping to have all routes finalized, and route sheets sent to riders, on Tuesday evening.
There is still room available for riders on any of the routes. If you want to ride and you have not yet sent me a registration form, please do so now. We need final headcounts for food at the Clara control for the three days.
If you have any food allergies or intolerances, please let me know as well. We will do what we can to accommodate riders.
Please note that all bedding is provided by the Aspire Centre in Clara, but that does not include towels for showers.
We could use some volunteers to help in Clara, especially on Friday evening/night, any time during the hours of 10 pm to 6 am, and on Saturday late afternoon/evening/night, any time during the hours of 6 pm to 6 am. While the event is designed to work with a very small crew, having more people will make it easier for all and help us provide better service to the riders.
Next door to the Aspire Centre in Clara there is a spa that with sauna and Jacuzzi. I am inquiring on availability and prices for Saturday afternoon/evening after the 600k.
North to the South entries closing tomorrow.
Long range forecast – day 12c high – light rain 14mph WSW. Night 8c low – cloud 15mph S.
