The route is mainly road and cycle paths with a tiny amount of off road.
Although helmets are only recommended by law and not deemed to be essential, anyone not wearing a helmet will not be able to join the ride. Please be self-sufficient and arm yourself with spare inner tubes, bike levers and pump. Don’t forget your pennies for the event. Please ensure you bring along a drink for the ride. Also check you brakes and gears on your bike at least the night before.
