1Can I enter on the day?
Sorry, entry is only available in advance. Entries for the 2021 event close on Sunday October 31st.
2What bike is best?
Anything capable of riding off-road is suitable. The terrain is varied and suits Cyclocross bikes and Mountain Bikes and some gravel bikes. If you want to ride a CX/gravel bike then we recommend disk brakes, tubeless tyres, decent tread on the tyres for grip and also as fat as possible. We suggest 40mm as a minimum, but less is possible.
3Can I use an e-bike?
We allow e-bikes that are UK legal, limited to a maximum of 25kph. This is guidance for all legal e-bikes. Any e-bikes that have been de-restricted are banned completely. We reserve the right to test bikes at registration and anyone riding a bike that exceeds the speed limit with assistance will be removed from the event with no refund given.
4I've entered but now I can't make it
If the event is cancelled due to COVID-19, all entries will be provided, minus costs occurred. This does not include individual circumstances and the requirement to self-isolate. In all other circumstances ee are unable to refund entries, but we will allow transfer of names. If you can’t make it, but want to sell/give your entry to someone else, that is fine with us. Name transfers will be free of charge up until 21 days before the event. Beyond this date it may not be possible to transfer entries. Entry transfers can be to different categories if required.

6Do I need a racing license?
No. The event is classed as non-competitive, as such no racing license is required. No ranking points or prizes are on offer.
7Is there a cut off time?
Yes, we will inform riders nearer the time what the cut-off is likely to be. It will depend on weather and ground conditions.
8If I enter the long route, can I switch on the day?
Yes, you are free to change distance on the day - either before the start or during the ride.
9I've entered the short route, but fancy doing the longer route?
We would prefer it if you can let us know at least a week before the start - but if you want to do the longer route, you can free to change.
10Is there electronic timing?
We will be using a computerised timing system. It does not use timing chips, but will give you an accurate time for the route.
