ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The following is for information only and does not form part of the contract.

On arrival at Wyboston Lakes:

Registration will be in the Willows Training Centre from 3.00pm – 6.00pm on Monday 5 August 2019. PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE BEFORE THIS TIME. Please bring your Booking Confirmation with you. Should you be delayed or unable to arrive on the Monday, please contact bookings@birthdayrides.org or telephone 07926 693 066 to discuss other arrangements. There will be no refund for missed meals.

Local members and helpers will be on hand to show you where to register and where your accommodation or camping pitch is. You will be issued with appropriate identification which should be worn at all times.

Rides

All rides will leave from the Training Centre. There will be five routes available for each of the four categories of rides, mainly on-road, to suit all levels of ability and preference. Rides will not be formally led, rather all routes will be available to ride on all days to help minimise congestion on local roads and at refreshment venues. There will be a large OS map on display showing the routes and you will be able to select the routes you need rather than carrying a full pack of routes. The routes and approximate distances will be:

D rides up to 20 miles

C rides 20 to 40 miles

B rides 40 to 60 miles

A rides 60 to 80 miles

Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 maps 142, 143, 153, and 154 cover most routes. Hard copies and .gpx files will be available.

We shall endeavour to have a vehicle available on riding days to meet emergency pick up requirements (in the event of an accident or a serious mechanical failure). We reserve the right to charge users of this service.

Whether you use a road bike, touring bike or mountain bike, please ensure that it is in good working condition, especially the brakes. You should carry sufficient spares and tools during the rides to deal with punctures and minor repairs that may arise. There is a cycle shop, Wheelers, at 34 St. Marys Street, Eynesbury, St. Neots, PE19 2TA, (01480 476529). You will need a rackpack, saddlebag or panniers to carry any spare clothing (don’t forget the waterproofs!) and food. Refreshment stops may be sparse in some parts, so a water bottle and emergency rations are always useful, especially on the longer rides. Cycle helmets are not compulsory.

Evening Entertainment

Each evening there will be entertainment on site. The programme is not yet finalised.

The Anniversary day – 5th August

After registering, all are welcome to have a drink and piece of birthday cake.

Holiday Insurance

You are strongly advised to take out insurance to cover your loss in case of cancellation. Please refer to the Booking Conditions, Clause 6.
