The personal kit bag should weigh no more than 10Kg when placed on our pre-loading scales and be labelled with your name and ride number. For those camping we can transfer your tent too, so long as it's not of marquee proportions! Sorry but no liquids in the bags - they just make a mess of your kit. Unless you're making own arrangements please hand your kit bag over to our Kit Van Marshals based at registration before heading to the Start. Your kit bag will be at Chepstow awaiting your arrival.
We are providing back-up facilities and we must insist that your supporters, friends and family do not bring any vehicles out on the route to follow as this will create unnecessary congestion and will be a danger to cyclists and other road users. We are keen to encourage support at the start and finish.
Only riders on the event will be allowed to enter feed stations.
