Check-in (and entering on the day)

The start is very busy.  For those who have pre-entered, we strongly recommend that you check in at least half an hour before your start time.  Check-in opens at 8am, and start times are:

At check-in you will be given a SACCR T-shirt, a rider number bib, a route card and a coloured route sticker.  Please wear the T-shirt, and display the number and sticker so that they are visible to the route marshals.

Anyone entering the event on the day may do so from 8:00am.  Please note that we cannot guarantee a T-shirt to anyone entering on the day.

Check-in will close promptly at 10.30am.  Anyone who has not checked in by 10:30am will not be able to start the ride.
