You can send a replacement rider out on the course at any time. The replacement rider must check
in at the Start/Finish tent before starting the lap. Any replacement rider must follow the exact course. No short cuts to reach stranded riders. If you are NOT the active rider then please DO NOT pass through the Timing Tent at any time (or at least cover your number and let the Timing Staff know that you are not active).

Yes, at least one of your team members must head out before sunset with a bike light fitted to your helmet and/or bike. Please make sure they are fully charged before you arrive. Lights can be charged if needed at the event site. Sunset is at 5.15pm so if you continue doing a lap just before the finish at 9pm, you will need up to an hours additional lighting power.
I would like to volunteer or I have a friend or family member that can help out ?
We can never have too many volunteers at an event and we encourage anyone to help us where possible. Even an hour is invaluable. Jobs may include marshalling at a checkpoint on the course (no skills required), helping with timing or other odd jobs. All volunteers will be rewarded according to how much time they can help us for. There's at least a free food and drink and possibly clothing (t-shirts) available for those who assist. Please e-mail Paul - firstname.lastname@example.org or make yourself known at the registration/timing tent on the race weekend if you are able to volunteer.
