Few have done it.
Can you take a leap of faith?
Only possible every 4 years.
Ride a Saddlesore 1000 in a leap year on 29th February and get a certificate to commemorate your onece in 4 years ride.

I think I might have a crack at this. My route comes in at 1010 miles - cutting it too fine? Anybody care to take a look at my proposed gpx?
Hi, I put your route in to myrouteapp.com and it comes out at 957 miles on the Tom Tom and Google Maps and 1024 on the Here (Garmin) map so you need to add some miles, perhaps head a bit further north?

You can send a proposed route to [email protected] ahead of a ride and Martin (not me) will have a look at it for you. Here is a different route, unverified, for your consideration although you may have to take it slightly further north.

Good luck!

Interesting! I think I'll flip Swansea and Plymouth, that adds 40-odd miles. That route forms the basis of my Fools Gold plan, that is basically that same but with Perth up top.

No such thing as bad weather just bad kit.
I'll be riding 1000 miles to the European Ride to eat in Holland via France and Germany. Leaving Bristol around 5pm via the chunnel

There will be another day, OK 4 years from now, but safety first.
