2020 is a year of vison; as we look back at last years GYRO and look forward to this years event.
2019 GYRO was a great success and although the Base to Base dream was shattered due to a road closure the event that emerged was fantastic and the atmosphere both on the road and back at ‘the hanger’ was awesome. Looking forward we wanted to build on this atmosphere and create an event that is achievable by anyone.
This year the GYRO has been revamped and 2020 sees the introduction of the GYROmini which is an easy 13mile route anyone can attempt; this route will be the start of the GYRO and the GYROplus+ so people taking on the GYROmini will still get the buzz and achievement of the longer rides.
The GYRO and GYROplus+ are both very hard rides, so will be an excellent event for someone to challenge themselves and possibly fundraise for GNAAS.
Entry is easy, you can sign up for the GYROmini or the GYRO. When you have signed up for the GYRO you have the option out on the course to do the GYROplus+ which adds about 24miles and Tan Hill climb to the normal GYRO route, the decision on the day will be yours.
We are very excited about the event this year and hope to build on the success of 2019.
