All Points North 2021

All Points North is a self-supported, ultra-distance, endurance cycling event.

Riders will set off from our event HQ on Saturday 4th September with the challenge to ride to 10 control points spread around the north of England and return to event HQ for a finisher’s meal at 8pm on Tuesday 7th September. Riders are able to choose their own route around the checkpoints and can either ride solo or as a pair. Once out on the road, riders have to be completely self-sufficient, are unable to accept support from anyone and must follow the event rules.

This year there are three categories:

  • Rookie Riders (20 riders) – start at midday and get an extra 8 hours to complete the event.
  • Solo Riders (46 riders)
  • Pairs (7 pairs)

Applications for APN21 have now closed. Take a look at this year’s list of Riders.
