You keep to a schedule that best suits your own abilities and riding style.July 2014 saw 24 cyclists complete a tough but highly rewarding mammoth 1300km event, this event follows much of the route taken, but the West coast section is now split in two, with the central highlands providing a change in cycling experience. Comprehensive WWW links, smartphone apps to enable you to plan for your style of cycling. This 1200km event is an adaptation of the critically acclaimed 1300km ride filmed by by Triple Echo Productions for the BBC in 2014. Either ride as (say) a nominal 300km per day, and sleep at regular intervals, riding the route entirely in daylight. Or ride non-stop, and resting where or when you feel like it. Ferry crossing needs to be planned, some could be by-passed - although the detours may involve a considerable increase in riding distance. This is an X-rated event - so, the ride is Audax at it's most litteral and exciting.
