Belgians have their cobbles, Italians have their strade bianche, USA have their gravel. In Ulster we have Boreens - rough, narrow roads used by livestock & machinery.

Surface dressed, potholed with a grass strip up the middle, they ride like compacted gravel but can get way rougher.

Boreen is for teams of 2-4 riders on a course suitable for cyclocross, gravel or MTBs.

HQ for the event is Basil Shiels' Pub along the river Callan.

The 78km route is divided into 2 loops. Each loop starts and finishes in the car park. Each loop has one manned control point, where the teams must pass through together and collect tokens and bring both to the finish.
