Well here we go again! On my way to #notAPN20 ...I leave a week late but on time to participate to the price draw on 17th September. Hesitated a lot before going: did not ride much since coming back from France, felt morally a bit down, I don’t really have any bike made for long endurance, I had not really planned the route well or prepared anything and I am in real need of sleep and family time... but then, I thought: stop making excuses and go! I said I’d do it back in May before it was cancelled and so I am committed to doing it now! If all goes well I will leave from Sheffield at 1am Saturday morning and will be back on Monday - with around 8h of sleep total... Wish me good luck and good weather! 🙏🏻 ...

We’ve adapted the ‘Not All Points North’ format after being inspired by one of our APN20 entrants, @bastonjohn’s suggestion. Hopefully this will enable more riders to take part safely and responsibly. Full details are on the website’s homepage - have a read and let us know what you think.

#notapn20 The route to CP3 for me was tough. Out of ntfountainsabbey into a block headwind for 45km. Finally made it to Arncliffe for another photo of the bike which is doing better than me 🤣. Buttertubs next with a trip down to Hawks on the way to my next Checkpoint. ...

An innocuous set of steps to start a long journey 🚵
An unapologetic warning to expect lots of poorly framed landscapes as I track my way around allpointsnorth.cc #notapn20

Didn’t reach today’s desired goal ... however, a good sleep will hopefully give me new energy for tomorrow’s ride. #notapn20 #roadslikethese #outsideisfree #fromwhereiride ...

Finally Berwick upon Tweed. Not been feeling that spesh today after a long one yesterday so the East coast and dry weather couldn’t come quick enough. It’s a stunning spot.

Now for pizza before heading back up hill into the wind, hopefully minus the rain... #itsgrimupnorth #itsstunningupnorth #rideupnorth #bikepacking #loveridingmybikealongway #outsideisfree #fromwhereiride #notapn20 #transcontinental2up

FIN - Sheffield

And that’s a wrap folks.

#notapn20 complete. Plenty of miles, hills and gravel over 5 days (ride to be uploaded to Komoot for full stats).

Suitably knackered.
