The GPX files are available - Updated 2019. These are suitable for loading onto cycle computers. There is a small possibility that the organisers might have to make a diversion on the 65km route only, because of gas pipe repairs on Stevenage Road. An additional 65km Diversion gpx file is provided below, for users of cycle computers. Users of cycle computers should load both versions of the 65km route on their devices, and choose the correct route version before the start on Sunday. Printed Route Sheets and Maps of the Diversion will be available on Sunday, if needed. The organisers will confirm on Sunday morning whether or not a Diversion is needed.
