25th June 2017 - 10 am - Carharrack
This popular Cornish randonnée is now in its 22nd edition in its familiar dual format - a 67km route on the tarmac for the roadies, and a 66km parallel off road route for the mountain bikers, which is 90% off-road and has some technical bits. Both trace the now scenic industrial landscape of the Copper Kingdom and the Great Flat Lode.

The off-road route visits Unity Woods, Wheal Busy, Portreath, Illogan Woods, Tehidy Country Park, the Red River, the Great Flat Lode, the summits of Carn Brea and Carn Marth, Wheal Maid and its tailings dam, Wheal Jane, Billy Bray's Chapel, Twelveheads, the Poldice Valley, before returning to Carharrack. The on-road route includes Wheal Busy, Portreath, North Cliffs, the Great Flat Lode and the picturesque Restronguet Creek.
