Event Information

Description:

NEW FOR 2021 – pick up pint 1! Beeline it out of Bristol going north on easy roads as night quickly sets in over the Severn Valley. Some of it is flat and fast, some a bit lumpier as you flank the valley floor. Late evening cross the Severn at the historic Iron Bridge and leave it behind passing through Wellington; then roughly track the course of the old GWR dual line through Market Drayton and on to Crewe. Turning you shadow the mainline to Shrewsbury and back into the Severn Valley. On into Wales you go as daylight appears at some point depending on your ooomph. Then you’ll get to Llangurig and enjoy the cafe who will be open for the entire event; 1 pint of full fat milk to keep you going? Then it’s the final leg along easily navigable roads that you have probably done before but in warmer months; no controls but a 24hr option to stop for a respite. Cross the bridge back over the Severn and you are almost there! Unless you choose to do the Double Creamed….
