Blast ’20 Timings

Rider start times: It’s vital that we stagger everyone according to their DISTANCE and SPEED, quite simply to avoid too many people in the same place at the same time and to reduce queuing as much as possible in the village halls…whilst also allowing people to cycle together. We will not be giving out individual start times – we ask riders regulate themselves. (SEE BELOW)

 

To aid social distancing, and avoiding grouping at the start, finish and in the village halls we have to adhere to the following:

  • no more than 6 riders at a time in a group.
  • no more than 4 groups of 6 (24) in the start area at any one time, marked by 4 hay bales.

Please arrive with the group you want to cycle with and according to the distance and your approx. speed as shown below.
