Should you need to be recovered and cannot continue, please turn your bike upside down, and find a safe place to wait until assistance arrives. Please contact Event HQ to advise you are dropping out. In the first instance please seek your own recovery support, our team will provide recovery assistance where possible.
Resurfaced roads/uneven surfaces
Please be aware some of roads on the routes may have been recently resurfaced resulting in surface gravel. Please take care in these areas. As an extra precaution we recommend you bring a spare inner tube in case of punctures. A support team from Corley Cycles will be located at Cranfield HQ. They will be offering simple repairs and support but please also bring your own kits to be able to manage basic repairs yourself on route.
Cranfield University are running a BBQ at Mitchell Hall for you to enjoy when you complete your ride so remember to bring some cash. Your family and friends are very welcome to join us.
Please remember to fundraise for Willen Hospice. Your entry fees only cover our event costs. It’s the funds you raise through donations, match-funding and sponsorship that will directly support Hospice care.
If you need any help, please get in touch with our events team.
