NEW ENTRIES - ENTRIES ARE STILL OPEN
It is well and good that we can service your bike during the ride, but what about you – the rider?! Well, don’t worry, because we’ve got you covered as well, with a range of water points and ‘service stations’ for riders around the course.Listed below are the service stations located around each ride. Each service station will have (at least) some water for you to fill up your water bottles, some cake and / or lollies to give you a bit more energy, a toilet and some friendly marshals.
