We’ve had our measuring sticks and timing devices out and have concluded that the cut-off will be at The Food Stop! hurrah, at least you’ll be able to get a bit of flapjack before being sent home…
The cut-off time is generous! Do not panic!!! You have until 2pm to get there!
So, if you’re doing The Outlaw the food stop is about 37miles in, if you’re doing The Drive then it’s about 28miles in. The Food stop is not a luxury affair, it’s a pop-up gazebo at the side of the road. You should be carrying enough food to see you round the course. The food stop will have:
We MIGHT have tea and coffee. No guarantees…if the weather is like last year we will special efforts to get warm drinks there!
It’s probably worth mentioning if you’re after something more substantial you pass a CAFE! Just a few miles from the food station…(in the village of Hawnby). And, if you’re on The Outlaw there’s one further on too.
There’ll be a chap at the food station who knows his way round a bike and tool box in case you need any trailside repairs to limp home…please remember to carry spare inner tubes and a puncture repair kit! (Kit List is on the Event Info page).
