Registration and Start

The event centre is located in the Knighton Community Centre, Bowling Green Lane, Knighton LD7 1DR. Plenty of Pay and Display parking available at the HQ (£3.20 for all day Sunday).

A large coned off area directly in front of the event centre will act as the Start and Finish line. Mechanical support and bike spares for sale from Plush Hill will be available, plus registration, toilets and changing facilities (but no showers).

Once you arrive at the event centre you just need to sign in and pick up your timing chip. The event centre will be open to riders from 8:00am, and it is here that we will publish any last minute information/changes.

We'll be starting in batches of 20 from 8.30am onwards. All Classic and Short Cut riders need to be away by 9am. 80km riders can start from 9am and need to be gone by 9.30am. We expect you back by 4pm and the event HQ will shut at 5pm.

The Short-Cut route

If you can't get to the first food stop in Rhayader (50km) by 12:00 we suggest you go on the short-cut route, which is 20km shorter and avoids the biggest single climb. If you arrive before 12:00 and want to take the short route feel free. Once you return to the event HQ remember to tell us that you have done the shorter route.

There is no cut-off point on the 80km route.
