Please note new HQ - 43rd Scout Group - Saxlingham Nethergate - NR15 1TE.
A relaxed event with the choice of two distances to explore the rural roads of Norfolk. There are plenty of places to stop, restock on supplies and simply enjoy the countryside.
The distances are designed to challenge seasoned cyclists and people relatively new to cycling. You will encounter a mixed community of people to hopefully make for an enjoyable day out. This is an affordable event with refreshments and treats at the end.
How to get to the HQ?
43rd Scout Group - Saxlingham Nethergate - NR15 1T
What facilities are there at the HQ?
The HQ will be open between 07:30 and 21:30. There are toilets, storage (insecure - leave belongings at your own risk), food & drink. If you have any dietary requirements, please contact the organiser!
What are the routes?
You will receive a route sheet nearer the time as we have amended the routes slightly from 2023. Both routes are clockwise; the shorter route goes around south Norfolk, and the long route goes right up to the north Norfolk coast. We will also inform you of potential hazards.
Are the routes mandatory?
No - the routes are advisory. You can choose your own roads if you like, as long as you tick off all the controls.
Where are the controls?
The revised route is being finalised, so we will share the control locations soon.
As with last year, we are also supporting the eBrevet app, so you can check-in with the app instead of having to collect receipts and figuring out our questions on the Brevet card. Please note Audax UK still require riders to fill out their arrival times on their brevet cards to be checked against their Ebrevet submission on completion of the ride.
What if I can’t start or finish?
Please contact Tom, the organiser, if you are unable to make the start (or if you are running late) or if you are unable to finish the event.
Will you help me if I have any issues?
We’ll do our best to assist you whilst you’re at the HQ, but don’t offer assistance when you’re out on the road. You should expect to be self-reliant, but you can always try to flag down another cyclist if you’re struggling. Audaxers are generally a friendly and helpful crowd! Entrants riders packs will advise the kind of things you may want to take on a longer distance ride.
What are the rules?
The event is run under Audax UK regulations. You should familiarise yourself with Audax UK regulations, guidance, and advice (available in AUK publications, at https://www.audax.uk/ or on request from the organiser).
Any other questions?
