Water

Race organizers will supply a single source water for the water points and consumption during each stage. Tap water in our race village is perfectly safe for drinking, but it is recommended that riders utilize our supply of drinking water.

Bike Service

It is essential that riders start the race with a well serviced and prepared bicycle – take it to your local bike shop and explain what you are planning for the next 4 days – they will do the necessary. It is advisable that you carry brake pads, tubes, a master link and a replaceable dropout (remember it is unique to every bike) with you.

The Race village

Recycles will supply a complete bicycle repair service at the race village. They also supply a maintenance plan for the duration of the event, this includes a bike wash – it is highly recommended that you look at this option. Details of the bike tech package will be updated soon.

Bike Wash

Products will be provided for this service – please note this is a rinse down wash only.

Security

Although there are no real safety concerns within the race village, riders must be alert and keep their equipment safe when their bikes are not in the secure storage facility.
