*Please show up on time and ready to ride at your designated time. Please allow plenty of time to spare – the area will be congested as Bong Bong Street will be closed.
*Riders MUST leave with their allotted distance – for example 120km riders MUST NOT depart with the 160km riders and visa versa.
*There are toilets on the start line – please refer to the guidebook (download above) for their location.
*Find your start group marshalling area along Boolwey Street. You will then be marshalled into your wave start time.
*Please remember that this is NOT a race. If you miss your start time there is no problem so long as it is within your distance group.
*If you show up early you can slot into a group of 75 and depart with an earlier wave.
*If you show up late you can slot into a group of 75 and depart with a later wave.
*If your team mates signed up at a different speed to you and you want to ride with them you can slot into their wave of 75
*Most importantly, have fun!
