Fancy a Saddlesore 1000 ride with a twist? The Government 1000 Certificate ride requires riders to visit the Assembly and Parliament buildings of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland within a 24 hour time period AND cover AT LEAST1,000 miles in the process.
This Saddlsore ride is slightly more difficult than a standard saddlesore 1000 as you will have to visit 5 major cities and your ferry crossing will be included in the 24 hr time period. Therefore, although this ride is open to non- members, we would advise you to seriously consider one of our "easier" rides such as the circuit of Ireland or a Basic Saddlesore 1000 before attempting this Government ride. If you do wish to attempt this ride as your first IBA ride attempt, please plan your ride carefully, paying particular attention to timings for boats and city centre riding.
