Sign Up... All you need to do is send an email [firstname.lastname@example.org] to tell us the name and address of each participant (and their age if they are under 18) and route each person wants to cycle.

There is no 'set' participation fee but we do ask for a suggested donation on the day:
8 & 14 miles: £5 per adult or £10 per family group
26 & 35 miles: £10 per adult / £5 child
55 miles: £15 per adult

Please wear a cycle helmet - this is mandatory for those under 18.
Your bike must be in a roadworthy condition.
REMEMBER this is not a race. Be a good advert for cycling and show consideration for other road users.
Some of the roads are narrow with rough edges and in places it may be necessary to dismount from your bike to allow large vehicles to pass.
Never ride more than two abreast and drop back to single file if there is traffic wishing to pass you, particularly on narrow roads.
Do not attempt any dangerous passing.
It is forbidden to cross the centre line of the road unless turning right or avoiding a hazard.
Keep a safe distance between you and other cyclists at all times, as some may be inexperienced.
Don't go mad down hills, please signal any intention to turn left or right and don't stop suddenly; there may be traffic directly behind you.
Please do not ask supporters to drive along the course (unless they are coming to rescue you!)
You MUST bring a full water bottle and any necessary medication with you.
