Do I need a PPA number?

You don't need to be a PPA member to enter the race. Riders who are not members will be issued with a temporary number on the day. Only PPA members will be timed and only if they have a Racetec timing chip. PPA seeded members will start the race first, according to their seeding. You can still become a PPA member on the morning of the race. For more information click here.

Can I ride with someone else's number?

No. If you're found riding with someone else's number, you could be disqualified and/or banned for 1 year. This is strictly enforced because your personal and medical details are linked to your race number in case of an emergency.



I want to change my distance, what do I do?

You are welcome to chance your route, but only on the morning of the race. Please proceed to the registration counter.

What do I wear?

Helmets are compulsory. Cycling shoes, shorts and other cycling gear are recommended.
