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

The ’72-hour’ riders will set off from our event HQ on Friday, 26th May 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 Monday, 29th May. 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 we’re trying out a new format for our Rookie category that we hope will enable more riders to make it back in time for the finisher’s party. You can find out more about this here.

The application window for applying to ride APN23 will open in December 2022 – watch this space for updates.
