The NW Passage follows its well established routes of either 200k or 120k. Several Condors will be missing from the start line this year, saving themselves for Sunday but I know that Chris, Paul D, Mel, Steve T, Simon and myself are up for the long route and Nigel & Ian are down for the not quite so long route. Entries on the day accepted, see Audax website for full details.
The Imps Reliability Ride will be kicking off from outside the Ritz in Brighouse at 9am on Sunday but you will need to be there earlier to sign on.

NOTE: The route planner JK, tells me that he has recce'd the route this week and found out that the road from Barden over Halton Moor (aka Eastby Brow) will be closed due to bridge repairs so he intends to take the route down to Bolton Abbey from Barden and over the gated road to Embsey.
