When you arrive all riders will need to read the T&C’s and then sign in at the desk. Please also sign back in after the ride. Please make sure you are on time for the start, 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 17 miles it will then re join up later on the course and carry on together until the end. Maps will be available to view at the start venue and the routes can be downloaded on our website.
