Hit The North Returns Again. Again.

by Chipps 0

The Singletrack Forum’s favourite event ever* is to return this May. Run by 24 hour racing legend and Guy Martin’s World Record-setting tandem partner Jason Miles, the event will once more return to Prestwich in Northern Manchester for its irreverent take on bike racing. With a two hour time limit to do multiple laps, the event promises to be equally unsuitable for ‘cross bikes, fat bikes, downhill bikes and trail bikes, so bring whatever you want as it’ll be the wrong bike.

(* It might not be, but you’d think so given the noise everyone makes about it. That and the Big Bike Bash…)

As Jason says” It’s back! As irregular as ever. At least we’re on consecutive years now. Two hours around and around a fun lap on any bike you want. Just a half-brick’s throw from the centre of Manchester. Don’t mess about – get your entry in fast because everyone goes mad for this race. Prizes will be as amazing as ever, so will the weather.”

The date?
19th May, 2018.
