Mediofondo Rider Instructions

Registration will take place at the following times:

Sunday 19th May at Marlwood School from 7.15am

Please follow signs to the School Hall where you will be able to collect your rider number and timing chip. We will supply you with zip ties to attach them to your bike. There will be cable snips available to trim them but you may find it worthwhile bringing scissors or snips of your own as a lot of people will be asking to use ours.

Once you have collected your rider number and timing chip, please wait until you are called to ride. We will call numbers in order to go to the starting area, so numbers 1 – 50, 51 – 100 etc.

The ride will start at 8.30am

Our aim is to get 50 people started every 2.5 minutes. With delays that may occur, this means that all MF riders should be on the road by 9.00am.

When you are on the road, you need to look out for the Black Rat signs which are black with orange arrows.

The first feed station will be in Monmouth, near the arch next to the river. Public toilets are 20m away.

Drinks will be dispensed from the containers provided.

After leaving the feed station in Monmouth you will head towards Rockfield and on to Cross Ash where you will split from Granfondo riders and take the Ross Road which takes you to Skirrid.

The second feed station will be at the village hall in Raglan.

On return to Marlwood School, you should cross the timing mat below the arch in order to get your finishing time.

After finishing, please remove your timing chip and hand it in to the staff. This is important. Any chips not returned will be charged at £45.00 each by the timing company. Even if you don’t finish the ride for any reason, you must hand your chip back.

You will be offered food at the finish and there is enough space for you to eat it at the school and cheer other finishers as they cross the line.

Please be tidy with your food utensils and plates when you have finished – we will have plenty of rubbish bags around and we want you to use them!
