That's quite tempting actually. I might check out some of the route tomorrow (foot and mouth disease permitting), although I'll be doing it by MTB so it may take a while!

I rode the section which forms the first major loop of the 'Challenge' and 'Epic' routes today. Some of it is really lovely and goes places that I've never been to before. I did it on an XC full-suspension MTB (yes, I know!), so at just over 80km (from my house) it felt quite hard work. ;) The original plan was to ride the 'Challenge' but I ran out of water and have plans to ride tomorrow so didn't want to knacker myself.

It certainly looks worth a go. Thanks for posting it Simon.

I've got an 08:20 start, anyone else starting then? The weather looks like it will hold out.

You were'nt far wrong there - finished absolutely wrecked. If it wasn't a steep climb then it was into a strong head wind.
Beautiful route and well organised & signposted - Didn't deviate from the route once:smile:
Would I do it again? You bet!
