Ok, so you’re pumped and ready to go – but when do you start?!
Start times will be allocated based on a combination of factors including rider experience (as specified by you at registration) and the number of places available in each start time.
The 30km and 50km Rides start from 7.20am, with start times every 20 minutes to spread riders evenly along the course to reduce congestion. Your allocated start time will be printed on the reverse of your Event Bib which will be posted to you in your Entry Kit in February/March. Please make sure you stick to your allocated start time on event day.
The 3km and 6km Family Rides start at 11.30am.
