What happens if I miss any of the cut off times?
You will be diverted down a shorter route, back to the ride finish. The ride finish has a cut off / closure time due to restrictions on our access to the Seashell site. Please be aware of this, especially if you park your car there.
All ride timings will be published in your Rider Pack, which will be sent to you before the event.
Any rider who ignore this will ride at their own risk and will not be supported by the Seashell Sportive.
What happens if I run in to difficulties on the ride?
All riders are responsible for themselves during the event, including making arrangements to get back to the start if necessary. However, there is an emergency ‘Rider Control/ number you can call, and we will try to assist and advice on how to resolve your problem. We also have emergency motorbike riders around the course of all four rides. We do not however provide a ‘Sag Wagon’ service to pick up those riders who drop out or carry equipment. There are trained bike mechanics at our major feed stations and the ride start.
