The ride itself takes place on quiet country roads and some off-road shared cycle paths, with a clearly-marked route and full mechanical and medical support throughout.
For the majority no transport will be needed as it is an ‘out & back’ ride however for those wishing a shorter ride public trains are nearby at Clifton Down, Bristol Temple Meads or Yatton (20 minutes ride from Clevedon). The whole route ‘there and back’ is 35 miles or a 20 mile ride is possible by using the trains 1-way (riders are responsible for sorting their own arrangements if they choose to do this – we advise riders to book their bikes onto the train
in advance however GWR the operator report that this may be done any time in advance of the train arriving).
The Ride is fully supported with clear directional signage, as well as comprehensive en-route medical and mechanical support from experienced providers. A backup recovery service is also available if needed, and riders are looked after every step of the way! The event is registered with British Cycling, cycling’s governing body, and is being run in accordance with its technical regu- lations (NB cycling helmets are required), and all signed-in riders benefit on the day from automatic third-party event insurance (provided by British Cycling) as part of their entry fee.
Entry to the event costs £5 per person, and 100% of all entry fees will be donated post-event to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
