Brexit unearthed

the densest,
most twisted
road network in Europe.






A team event

No frills Unsupported

Riding as a team of 2–4 you’ll aim to cover a twisting, technical course in a given time. Teams navigate using only GPS files and a Garmin. You must pass through manned & unmanned control points en route to ensure you stay on course. You are in charge of your own navigation, mechanicals and safety. Delegate duties in advance - planning and organisaion are essential - Murphy's Law applies

Belgians have their cobbles, Italians their strade bianche, USA have their gravel. We have Boreens - rough, narrow roads used by livestock & machinery. Surface dressed, potholed with a grass strip up the middle, they ride like compacted gravel but can get way rougher. The event is for Cyclocross, Gravel or MTBs.
