Please Note - we have created a new Course Map (see link below) - this was due to the change to the Start Area, from the Square to Terrace End, for the 2016 event. The new map calculated each ride distance and we now identify those rides by this new distance.

For example the previous 20km ride now measures as 16km so that ride is now called 16Km. 


A single registration entry for each Tandem is required.

Enter before the 16th October 2018 and be into a separate Spot Prize Draw

Electric Bikes can be used on any ride.
