Introduction

Ok. Here goes. I’ve not done this before so please be gentle with me. I’ve been awarded the honour of setting the next route for the winter series. Given impending IT problems (I’m about to switch to a new phone) I’ve decided to post this now, while I know I still can. Hope that’s ok. Route details below, plus piccies of checkpoints, with thanks to my models Katelyn McKeown and Frank.

I’ve probably missed some key info somewhere so just let me know if I have and I will attempt to rectify. Edit. Knew I had missed something…the bloody name. It was christened ‘Out on the town’. Rather ironically since none of us have been recently or will be for the foreseeable 😊I will paste a link to my Strava effort in the comments box.
