Event Information



Health & Safety


There will be Ambulance services provided on route and at the Start – Finish area for you safety.


We would recommend cyclists carry plasters and a foil emergency blanket, carrying a cell phone in a waterproof bag is also recommended. If you are allergic to bee-stings, we recommend you carry your antihistamine with you, as there are bees throughout the forest.


We will have the necessary medical support for the event in place on the day to ensure your safety in the event of an accident, please try not to use them. If you do come across a fellow cyclist in difficulty report the incident to the next marshal or call the emergency numbers provided.


 


Weather


The weather is likely to be cool early in the morning so please come prepared with the required kit, layering is recommended as it should warm up through the day. Sun screen should be applied throughout the day


 


The Route and Trail Condition


We have set a 25km route and riders will either complete the circuit, once twice or 3 times for the 3 different distances. This has come about because of the large amount of rain that we have experienced this season causing large sections of our usual route to be underwater, and so impossible to ride.  It is also the way the professional UCI events are now run.


Our route covers a large range of trail conditions and riders should be prepared for this. There may be frost at the start and extreme care should be taken when crossing bridges. There are sections of loose sharp rocks so adequate care should be taken to ensure tyres are not damaged and your race cut short.


 


Water and Rivers


There will be adequate water provided for refills at the water points, riders should carry enough water so see them through the first 12 km and then refill when required, drinking from the rivers and streams is strongly advised against.


 


Water Points


There will be 3 water points available on the route at 18km and 24km of the 25km loop, as well as at the finish


 


Respect for Landowners and the environment


All competitors are asked to respect that without the support of the various landowners and local communities through which this race passes, with our there support this event would not be possible. Please show your appreciation for this whenever possible.  Smoking or any fire making on course, particularly in the Forest, is strictly forbidden for obvious reasons.


Please be extremely sensitive to livestock and children on the route thought the community areas


Please do not litter, any energy bars/drink/goos packaging must be disposed of at the finish only, not along the route
