looks good, I may do the four seasons option at some point.
What bike are you using Paul?
Well I only have one road bike and it's a 2003 Giant TCR with a nice Dura Ace and Ultegra component mix, not exactly retro, but built up period correct nonetheless. It'd be nice to use something a bit older but I am at least fairly used the one I've got.
112 miles in a day on that route will be a real beast, but I've done quite a few hundred plus mile days when I've been touring, including days which have taken in some big mountain passes.
I'm hoping the lack of panniers and lightweight bike will make the climbing a bit more bearable. I'm actually more concerned about some of the descents on skinny tyres though.

Just watched the route map. Knowing the area and my own limits, driving that route in a day would be tiring enough. Is it a closed road event?
It's not a closed road event as far as I'm aware.
