The checkpoints will be spread far and wide, both in the city centre and the suburbs, up hills and down hills, along main roads and back roads. This race has something for everyone, whether you are used to the hills of Bristol or the crazy traffic of London you will be in with a good chance of winning some awesome prizes. After the main race there are gonna be longest skid and trackstand competitions before heading off to the road where poet Dylan Thomas was born for a hill climb challenge. To wind down (or up) after a hard days riding there will be an after party playing everyones favourite fixie videos and shit loads of great music.
