We have decided to top and tail our season with a new event using parts of a course used sometime ago and calling it The No Feed Fifty. I am sure you can work out what the means , 50 miles and NO feed station .We believe you don’t need a fee station for a 50 mile event. Nevertheless you can still stop to get your breath back whenever you want , but this course will be NO picnic. The course comprises of the following climbs , Shere Road , Barhatch Lane , Tanhouse Lane , Leith Hill and Whitedown along with a number of rolling roads for good measure.
Although there will be NO FEED on the course our HQ end of ride feed will be at it’s normal high quality managed by our two ladies, offering hot food , tea , coffee and sweet and savoury eats. Those of you who have ridden the Spring Onion I would like to think you would agree they do a great job at the HQ
We are offering a early bird price of just £20.00 to the first 100 riders who register , there is an optional donation of £5 which goes to our charity partner Le Cure Brest Cancer Charity www.lecure.org.
