Below is the 2019 Sweep information. 2020 details will be available to few in the coming months.
There will be three sweep buses only operating at the event, which are coaches that will depart from set locations and return to Margam Park at these set times:

The sweep vehicles will be able to collect both riders and their bikes. If things aren’t going to plan and you feel you may drop out please keep in mind these locations and try to get to them (this may include riding or walking back down the route) if you can. However, if you need collecting from a location not in the above plan, please call us on the emergency number below. We may be able to send a route manager to collect you and bring you to the nearest sweep bus. However, given the length of the route, and other support that maybe being given, you should be aware that our route managers may not be able to get to you for a long time. Therefore, please make sure you have made alternative arrangements to get back to Margam Park in advance with your family/friends or call a taxi company just in case.
