I think I sent you a copy earlier on this week Michael - maybe in with your spam. Anyway, I've just sent it again.

Email sent Si.

I'm just in the process of ordering some tasteful patches that will be available to anyone completing the route ... they'll look nice on a frame bag and proclaim to the world that you're not just hard but are in fact, double dead 'ard.

There won't be a time limit but completions will need to be in the form of a single, continuous round and comply with general self-supported guidelines.

Really interested in this (admittedly it'll be later in the summer before I'd get a chance) and would love a look.

Has there been any thoughts on a group start?
Would it be overgrown with foliage in late summer?

Yes, there isn't one but obviously feel free to attempt it as a true ITT.

Anyone who asked should now hopefully have the gpx file.

The first batch of these* will be ordered this week ... they'll be available to anyone completing the route in accordance with the self-supported guidelines.

*not to scale
