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: 07835 260107. This number is intended for minor instances (lost, breakdown, etc.). For accident emergency services call the normal 999.

Tips

  • 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 Trek (postcode RG12 1NY) or you could try Berkshire Cycle Company – both of these companies 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.
