Event Date:

All new route - All new design - Additional route option added - Additional feed-zone added

**100 mile route option**

**65 mile route option**

** No more bus transfers**

** 2 x Feedzones **


With over 400 cyclists taking to the night roads in 2016 - this was a truly memorable event.


Now in its 3rd year, we are expecting to sell out fast with this one as the interest levels have been incredible, and with only 750 spaces up for grabs across the two distances, be sure to get your places booked up quickly.


You will be setting off from Cromer Cliffs outside Blue Sky Cafe at sunset (appox 9:00pm)  (9:30 for the 65 milers)  with the sunset in the background. Once you leave Cromer you will follow the coast road through to Mundesley, leaving the sun setting behind you.  After you hit Bacton and the sights of the gas terminal you will now head back to Cromer for the 1st feed-zone via North Walsham


After the feedzone you will head inland via Felbrigg, Erpingham, Alysham, and past the beautiful  Blickling Hall.  You will now be half way in to this loop and heading onto Saxthorpe, Briston and then the turn for the coast, and back towards Cromer for the all new 2nd feed-zone.


The 3rd and final section! This heads out west and up the biggest hill in Norfolk 'Link's Hill' AKA 'Sandy lane' now onto the coast road tapping out a good cadence you will soon be at Langham making the run for home. You will be now chasing the rising sun !!  Can you get to Cromer before the sun rises?

(The 65 miler will miss out the inland loop)


 As well as our fully stocked feed zone, Blue Sky Cafe will also be open all night offering a fine array of choices at this unique event – so remember to bring some pennies for that extra treat you might fancy!
