faqs

1. Do you provide live timing?
Our events are not timed. This decision is taken to make our events as accessible to riders as possible, minimising the cost to set up the events and ultimately the price we have to charge our riders.

2. Do you provide medals or certificates?
We are now offering medals upon completion of any of our events this year.

The medals are available as an optional extra when entering and are available for £4.50. The decision was taken to offer the medals as an optional extra to ensure we keep our entry fees low, maximising the amount of money we raise for Naomi House & Jacksplace and ensuring our events remain accesible. We also appreciate that not all participants want a medal, so we wanted to make sure they’re not impacted due to the cost and that wastage is kept to a minimum.

The medals are now available to pre-order when entering any of our events, and will be given out on completion of your event.

As always, ideas like these will be constantly reviewed against our values and following the feedback of our valued participants.

3. When can I expect pre-event details?
We send our pre-event details out once online pre-entry has closed on the Wednesday before each of our events. The pre-event email contains everything you need to know about what happens on the day of the event and what you may need to bring with you.

4. Are there refreshements available before, during and after your ride?
There will be refreshments available to buy at the event HQ before and after your ride, including soft, cold and hot drinks, as well as a selection of snacks.

Riders are encouraged to bring sufficient food and water for during their ride.

A very well organised event with ample parking, easy registration, and good facilities available before the event. Very well sign-posted routes. Some beautiful countryside and very few cars (this is not a closed road event). Excellent cake en route. Thank you to Odiham Cycling Club members for managing the event and encouraging the slower riders to keep going and finish.
Thanks Andrew for the amazing review, we're really glad to hear you enjoyed it and hopefully we will see you at one of our next events!
