What is the minimum age for entry?
All participants must be 16 years old or older at the time of the event. If you are aged between 16 and 18 you must fill out a parental consent form and bring it with you to registration.
When can I find out more details about road closures?
A detailed map with full information on road closure timings will be released in the coming months. Velo South will be liaising with businesses and residents who will be impacted by the road closures in good time ahead of the event to reduce any possible disruption.
Do I need to stay the night before the sportive?
Unless you have a Fast Track Entry, you will need to come to the expo to collect your race pack and register for the event. The sportive will start early so if you are not a local resident you will most likely need to stay in the area overnight on the Saturday. Full details and timings along with links to our accommodation partner will be released shortly.
