Route Details


Due  to repair being carried out by National Highways to the A595 at Moresby, they will be closing the road for 10 consecutive weekends starting April 15th.
This means neither the half or full bike route can operate as normal. We have worked to plan a route as close to the existing as possible within the confines of Highways closures and emergency routes. All competitors will have received an email with full information.
