  1. What should I do after I arrive at Driffield Showground?

You will be directed by marshals to the parking areas (see Getting There). Please be careful on entering and leaving the Showground as there will be riders using the same entrance. Make your way to Event HQ and sign on at the Registration Desk. Here you will also be able to have some refreshments, familiarise yourself with course and be made aware of any possible last minute changes and have a look at our supporters and exhibitors stands.

  1. Where and when do I start?

Groups of 10-15 riders will be started in 3 minute intervals  from the starting point (marked on the map). Riders should be lined up in their groups several minutes before setting off to allow timekeepers to record numbers. The start times will be available in the event brochure.

  1. What happens if I have a problems with my bike?

You can make use of our complimentary cycle repair service prior to starting and there will be equipment to purchase on the day. We will also have a mobile cycle repair facility on the route, but we can't guarantee how long this facility will take to reach you. You will receive a number to call in case of emergency on the day of the event. Limited cycle repair facilities will be available at the feed stations and our marshals will also have some limited spares and help.

  1. How do I know where to go?

Although you should familiarise yourself with the course prior to setting off, we will have comprehensive signage at appropriate junctions. You will also be given a small map of the route before setting off. We will also have marshals at key points on the route to encourage you in the right direction. We will also have a dedicated hotline which you can phone us on if you get lost.
