Chris and a few pals had the pleasure of riding a filming the SW300 in April 2019 - thanks to the tremendous support of local businesses these videos capture the stunning scenery that we have. The route can be risen as a 24 hour challenge or over 4,5,6 or 7 days. Founder Nipper Varney has updated his site to show the various permutations and the videos we produced from the ride are shown below. Read about Chris’s 4 day cycle on the SW300 below
