There are always questions that you might have, the common ones are answered below.
Yes, the routes split shortly after the feedstation. Yellow arrows continue on the longer route, red arrows indicate the "short cut". This reduces the route from 100 miles to approximately 67 miles. You can make the decision right there which way to go. NOTE: Only long route riders visit the feedstation twice. Feeds are therefore roughly every 33 miles.
Due to social distancing and keeping everyone safe, riders will be allocated arrival and start times. Riders will roll individually over the start keeping 2m apart. 100mile group will start first followed by the 67 mile group. If you have chosen to ride with a friend you will be in the same starting slot (2M apart)
No. We've allowed it in the past and not only have the event team been kept waiting endlessly at the start, they have also had to wait into the early evening for the same people to finish. Car-less participants, please consider arriving on the Saturday and booking either a B&B locally or for maximum convenience a guest room at Sparsholt College.
Registration will happen online. You will be asked to complete a health screening questionnaire 7 days before the event. These questions will include questions around COVID-19 symptoms including about you and your household. You are asked not to come if you are unwell. We will also record your name and contact details of you and everyone that attends the event for Track and Trace purposes. This information is stored securely and will only be used for this situation.
We will have your t-shirt or jersey ready for you at check in. Stay in your car and we will bring it to you!
They are pretty cool! We have ordered a few extra, look out for your pre event info for a link to order one ready for event day! We may have a few left over at the finish to purchase.
Absolutely! You've just cycled a very long way and deserve an awesome medal to take away with you!
Yes. There will be a number of hand sanitiser stations around the venue and at the feed station. Please do not be offended if a marshal asks you to use the hand gel. You will be asked to use it before entering the feed station and upon leaving.
You can start riding from 7:30am. The feed station will close at 15:30. The finish line will close at 17:00 so all participants will need to be back by this time.
