Some important tips for those who enter 

We must insist that you wear a cycle helmet 

Make sure that your bike is roadworthy - check the tyres and brakes. If you are not sure how to do this take your bike to a cycle shop.

If you are not a regular cyclist, it is important that you ride your bicycle as much as possible during the weeks before the ride, to tune-up your muscles.

Get a good night's sleep the night before the ride, and have a good breakfast before you come out on the day of the event.

On the Ride

Bring some food to nibble; chocolate and fruit are a good idea.

Ride at a leisurely pace. Enjoy the countryside and remember that this is not a race!

Wear clothing - or reflective material - that will make you visible to motorists.

Carry some cash with you, in case your bike breaks down. Our recovery vehicle can bring you and your bike back to the start point in the event of an emergency. Follow the Highway Code. Keep to the left, and beware of oncoming traffic. Ride sensibly, and for your own safety, and as a courtesy to other road users, ride in single file.
