What is the Scotton 100? – First it’s not a race. It’s definitely a challenge and the idea is to get round in your own time but preferably before all your friends!
The route – Roughly circular you are never more than 10 mls from the finish.
What’s the off road like? – Depends on the weather but there is no deep mud, it can all be ridden on normal tyres but the sandy section can difficult if it’s very dry!
Which bike? – Well that’s the point, it’s a compromise, the lighter the wheels and tyres the more care needed on the rough but you have the advantage on the road.
How do I find the way? – Follow someone else at your own peril. You get a detailed route description, a map and the entrances to the off road sections are arrowed.
At the finish – village hall, changing, toilets (sorry no showers) and sit down food.
