TOUR OF THE CANDOVERS

When we booked the school for this event we were told that there is some building work going on at the school, when we went along yesterday to check the set up area we found that the building work is far more extensive than we expected, this will mean that the start and finish area might not be the same as last year.
It also means that parking is limited so if you live locally to the area it might be worth riding over to the start or if you know Odiham there is parking in the high street which is about 1/4 mile away.
we are sorry for this mix up but it is totally out of our control.

The Days Running time table:

Start at Robert Mays School Odiham, Hampshire,
address Below:

Robert May’s School
West Street
Odiham
Hampshire
RG29 1NA

The car parks wont be open until 8. am.

Please also sign back in after the ride.
We would like all riders away on time, so that there is a space between the rider groups
All the routes are sign posted with the two longer routes being the same up to the first split at 18 miles it will then re join up later on the course and carry on together until the end.
There is a small change to the 60 route this year to bring all the riders past the second water stop also if you have down loaded the route there is a small mistake that we can’t correct on the download, this is at the top of Chalky Lane ( at 35.5 ish miles ) and all riders should follow the signs and not there Garmins.

The start times are

60 miles 9.00 am
40 miles 9.30 am
20 miles 10.00 am
8 miles and family ride 10.15 am
