Over the many years the Three Counties Cycle Ride event has been run, many local and national charities have benefited from rider's fund raising efforts. Additionally the volunteers from number of charities including: Guides, Scouts, Ascot Alzheimer's Association, Wildridings School Association and other Rotary Clubs, who support us on the day receive a contribution to their organisations.

Any additional money you can raise will make a difference to our nominated charities as well as the organisations that help us to run the event.

The first riders will depart at around 08.00. The latest starting time possible is 09.30. The routes will be fully sign posted, and there will be marshals at all important junctions. If you experience any problems with your cycle, or you become unwell or hurt, the route will be patrolled by stewards with mobile telephones. There are also communication links at our checkpoints. We will endeavour to provide appropriate assistance where practical.

For the event only we have an emergency number: 07748 701346. This number is intended for minor instances (lost, breakdown, etc.). For accident emergency services call the normal 999.

Arrive at least 30 minutes before your start time, ready to check in 15 minutes before you are due to set off from Garth Hill College.

Follow the signs to the check-in point. Here you will be given your Bike Ride Number. Once you have your rider number you will be directed to where you can collect your 3ccr T-Shirt. We hope you will wear it on the ride to identify you as one of our riders.

Please note you are NOT entitled to a T-shirt if you have enrolled after the date shown on the About page.

  • Practice as much as possible during the weeks before the ride - it will make the ride much more enjoyable if your muscles are tuned-up for cycling.
  • Get a good night's sleep before the ride, and have a good breakfast on the day of the event.
  • Check that your bike is roadworthy - check the tyres, brakes and all cables. If you are not sure how to do this take your cycle to a local bike shop. A Bracknell shop is Halfords (postcode RG12 1EN) or you could try Berkshire Cycle Company who support our event.
  • The most common breakdown is a puncture, so please check you have at least enough tools to carry out a repair. We recommend you have a spare inner tube and don't forget the pump!
  • Bring some food to nibble; chocolate and fruit are a good idea. Note: drinks will be available at the drink stations.
  • Ride at a leisurely pace. Enjoy the countryside, remember THIS IS NOT A RACE.
  • Wear clothing - or reflective material - that will make you visible to motorists.
  • If you do not have some sort of eye protection we recommend you buy some safety specs.
  • Carry some cash with you, in case your bike breaks down. Our recovery vehicles will carry out repairs, but there will be a charge for parts.
  • In the event of an emergency our recovery vehicle can bring you and your bike back to the start point.
