Before the ride:
If you would like to drop down a distance before the event day, there is no need to let us know. Instead, please ensure you start the ride in the correct time slot for your new distance. As you cross the timing mat, we will be updated of your new distance.
You rider pack will still signify your original distance. You do not need to get this changed, but if you would like to, you can do so by visiting the help desk on the morning of the event.
Please ensure you are aware of the new distance colour arrows and follow these around the route.
You can find all route start times and colour indicators in the event guide.
During the ride:
If you are finding the going tougher than you had anticipated, we strongly advise you to drop down a distance and to complete the ride rather than be collected by a medic or sweep vehicle. The sense of euphoria of crossing the finishing line under your own steam is appreciably bigger than returning to Margam Park in the back of the sweep vehicle.
