So, I’ll stop compulsorily but most willingly after 46-47 minutes, aprox mid of our ride. In the second part, on our way to the Venue, there is another stop-worthy location!!! Which we’ll flexibly decide on leg stretch break. Route Files: TBC TomTom: TBC This ride out is not suitable for small bikes or scooters. Please be prompt with a full tank of petrol. You are responsible for your own safety so ensure you and your bike are road worthy and all legalities are observed.
