The Ride Around Britain's Coast needs you! Started and organised individually by Cycling Weekly forum members, the ride is a relay-style jaunt clockwise around Britain's coastline.
A fair few of the Ride Around Britain's Coast (RABC) sections have been taken, but there are still gaps to be filled by willing riders - the whole of Wales, for example!
You can ride any distance you like, the idea being that all of the individual routes link up - routes must use roads, rather than off-road. If you don't fancy covering 50 miles or more, then do a short route or perhaps get a cycling friend or clubmate to form a relay-within-in-relay - every little bit counts.
The ride is due to take place from May 2008. It's not a formally organised ride - there's no entry fee, no forms to fill out, just let other riders know where you want to ride via the CW forum.
You can plot your route, and see others' routes, via www.mapmyride.com. Instructions on how to do so have been created by forum user 'dodgy' at the Map My Ride website.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
