22-25 Sept 2022

Take the road less travelled between Lands End and London.

By road, what we really mean is ancient byways, mining trails, woodlands, canal paths and a bit of single-track, all joined together with a few bits of tarmac.

Distance: Approx 630 km

When: 6am Thu 22 Sept – 8pm Sun 25 Sept

Entry Fee: £100 (£15 discount if you have your own tracker)

All riders who enter on or before 31st May, will go in a draw to win a fabulous Tailfin Aeropack (worth at least £259)

The first 3 women to enter will receive a full size tin of Faction Chamois Cream

2022 is our first year running this event, but we hope it will soon become a calendar favourite. The format is similar to other events you may be familiar with, being an unsupported ride, were you cannot accept any outside assistance that isn’t available to all other riders. You are responsible for your own sleeping and eating arrangements, but we do allow you to book accommodation along the way, if you are not looking to camp/bivvy. However, time is limited, so if you are not a fast rider, there won’t be too much time to relax in hotels!!

There will be controls points along the route, and we are working with Map My Challenges to provide riders with trackers so your friends can follow your progress.

There are no prizes for coming first, but we will be handing out finisher goodies, for those that make the distance in the time cut. There are also some extra special goodies that could come your way thanks to our amazing partners, Tailfin and Faction

This is an ADVENTURE not a RACE. It will be a tough journey, but we hope you’ll have fun too.

We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously, and due to the linear nature of the ride, suggest that riders use public transport to get to the start and from the finish. Land’s End is close to Penzance which has a fast train service from London, and London, naturally has transport options to anywhere. If you are travelling from outside the UK, our nearest ferry option is from Roscoff to Plymouth, with mainline railway to Penzance.

Camping will be available at the start and is including in your entry fee. We very much hope that riders will get to know each other by camping together on the Wednesday night.

We hope to be able to carry a small bag for riders from the start to the finish, so you don’t have to carry any pre-post ride clothes with you.
