For 2019, we have three route options for you to choose from: BRoute 99, Route 66 and Route 33. All three routes have been revised this year so you have something different to see on your ride.

Please note, the details of the routes may change a little between now and the event, as we finalise arrangements, but they are genuinely indicative of the route for the day.
