When will I receive my rider pack?

The rider packs will be posted out to you around 1-3 weeks before the event. The starter pack will include your: entry number; bike number; route details; transport wristbands (if purchased), t-shirt (if purchased); all other information that you require to participate within the rider information booklet.

Timing chips for the Big Belter riders will also be included in the starter pack.
