Welcome to the Manx | RLT 

7th April 2019

Sunday 7thApril 2019 sees the inaugural edition of the Manx | RLT.

Brought to you by the Manx 100 team, you know it will be challenging, fun, exhilarating and a full on day  in the saddle. With four routes from 50km to 200km to choose from there is a route for all.

Each one is a tough challenge and all involve some instance of “gravel”.  RLT stands for Roads Less Travelled and gives a feel for what you are about to enter.  Featuring roads and tracks that you may not even know exist. Fun factor dialled around to 11.

The Isle of Man is a fantastically beautiful place to ride a bike, on or off road and this route will take you to places few visit on a road bike.

The event starts and finishes at the iconic TT Grandstand in the heart of Douglas.

Estimated Time to allow (could be very, very wrong!) 50k: 2.5 to 4 hours; 100k: 4 to 8hours; 160k (100 mile):  7 to 12 hours and 200k:  8– 12 hours
