Your rider pack includes everything you need to participate in the event:
- Large Event Number: This must be attached to your back , on the outside of your clothing (safety pins are not included). This must be visible at all times during the ride and is your passport to the Feed Stations and sweep vehicle where required. If you are taking part in the Tour, you will receive 2 large event numbers.
- Coloured Card: This is for us to identify who is riding which distance so the colour you have received will match your chosen distance. Please attach this to the front of your bike with the cable ties provided.
- Helmet and Bike Stickers: These stickers, printed with your event number, should be affixed as follows:
- One small sticker for the FRONT of your helmet (so we can identify you from the front)
- One small sticker for the Coloured Card provided
- The long sticker is to be attached around your bike seat post pointing backwards (so we can identify you from the side)
- Timing Chip: Your timing chip is the small silver tag which is stuck onto the long rectangular seat post sticker. This is very important so please ensure the long sticker is securely attached to the seat post of your bike. If it is not attached correctly or damaged in anyway, your results may be affected.
Please do not be worried if you receive your rider pack in the post, and find that that your race number and your timing chip number do not match. This will not have an impact on your time! Only the last 2 digits of your timing chip and race number will match.
If your pack is missing one of the above items, please contact us as soon as possible and we may be able to arrange for a replacement to be posted to you. Within the week of the event, this may not be possible so we ask that you visit the help desk on the morning of the event and we can provide replacement items.
