This Cycling event is NOT A RACE. The cycle course takes place on public roads. Observe the rules of the road. Keep to the left when not overtaking, do not cross the centre line and give way at junctions.
An approved cycle helmet must be worn with your bike in road worthy condition or you will not be allowed to take part.


At the start / finish area you will find all of the event facilities including medical staff, toilets and the results station. You can leave personal belongings at the event tent for collection after the cycle provided they are clearly labelled. You can also drop off your own nutrition for the aid station as long as you do so before 07:30, again provided it is clearly labelled.

There will be an Aid Station on the Cycle course providing providing nutrition, water & soft drinks in plastic cups. Those on the Fun Ride will pass this once and those on the 82km Cyclosportive twice. We recommend training using additional on-course nutrition supplements as part of your preparation – your supplies can be dropped off at the race tent. At the finish there will be refreshments available along with a BBQ provided by Bradwell Marina Bar & Cafe.
