I've been wanting to do an overnight cycle for a couple of years, however the existing well-known overnight events; the Dunwich Dynamo and the Exmouth Exodus are just not convenient for us northern folk.  

Join Will on this new ODL cycle challenge, cycling 100 miles from sunny Telford in Shropshire, through the night to Crosby Beach just outside Liverpool.  At Crosby beach we will be welcomed by Sir Antony Gormley's 'Another Place' artwork; 100 cast iron figures facing towards the sea.  We will leave Telford as it just becomes dark and arrive at Crosby Beach ready for breakfast and the sunrise.

The night of 11 June has been chosen as it is as close as possible to the full moon (Tuesday 14th June) and the summer solstice (shortest night, Tuesday 21st June).

The proposed route can be viewed here. We will cycle through Newport, Market Drayton and hopefully find a kebab shop or similar in Chester for some midnight energy.  We will then continue through Frodsham, Runcorn and the heart of Liverpool before arriving at Crosby beach. 

If you have any questions about the event or the route please contact Will.
