Event Village Parking

Parking is available near the Event Village for riders who want easy access to their vehicles at the end of the ride.

Timing Chips

If you are travelling to Bowral with your bike on a roof or rear rack, do not attach your timing chip until you arrive in Bowral. The airflow from high-speed vehicle travel will damage the timing chip.

Before the ride, remove the seat-post sticker from the backing paper and fold it around your bike’s seat post so the number is facing back towards rear of the bike.
