Codebreaker (http://www.racetimingsystems.com/public/race.aspx?id=1008)

Colussus (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/21596529)

The 2 courses will be the common until after the first feed at Feed Station X, after approximately 30 miles (50km), at Cranfield University Sports Hall (Wharley End).  Shortly thereafter there will be a Boolean choice as the 2 rides will divide, with the Codebreaker returning to the finish in approximately another 30 miles (50km).

Colossus will take a longer loop back to the Bowl and there will be a further Feed Station Y after 60m (100km) at a, Silverstone Recreational Association, The Pavilion, Church St, Silverstone NN12 8XA.  There will be a timing climb at the King of the Mountains climb at Pitchcott, which is at the most southerly part of the route.

The HQ is at The National Bowl (www.thenationalbowl.net) the sportive will start with a lap of the Bowl and exit right onto Watling Street, which will be closed for the duration of the event.  The course will turn left at the "The Bowl" roundabout and proceed in a south westerly direction along Chaffron Way.  Straight over the next "Furzton" roundabout then straight over the "Westcroft" Roundabout and then turn right at the "Kingsmead" roundabout and then after a 300 metres filter left following the directions for Whaddon.  A small minor roundabout and a few speed bumps on Whaddon Road  will see you exit the Milton Keynes City boundary limits and into the rolling countryside.

The T-junction in Whaddon is a key junction as you will return here later after 100km or 100miles and retrace your route back to the National Bowl, where you will complete a circuit of the Bowl (Paris-Roubauix style) before finishing under the gantry.

Once out of the City boundaries the routes take in some iconic places on route, ie Grand Union Canal, Woburn Abbey, Cranfield University Campus & Aerodrome, Emberton Park (home of MK tri), Hanslope Park (the real station Y), Towcester Race Course, Silverstone Motor Racing Circuit, Stowe School etc
