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.
