FIRST AID SUPPORT
First Aid support will be provided by Event Medical Services. Two mobile First Aid teams will be on course at all times - stationed at Road Ride Central in Dunnstown. There will also be an additional team on standby at the start / finish line to provide assistance.
ROAD RIDE CENTRAL
At Dunnstown we are establishing Road Ride Central. This will include first aid, transport, a mechanic, food and drink. This location is ideal as we can make contact and access most parts of the course within 10 minutes.
On course mechanical support is available. So whether you puncture, break a chain or generally need your gears tweaked you can guarantee you will be in fantastic hands. Riders with specialised bikes are encouraged to carry their own spares.
FOOD AND DRINKS
Water, bananas and lollies will be provided at all Aid Stations. Riders are also encouraged to carry their own sports drinks if required.
Aid stations will be located on the course as follows:
50km/60km Road Classic
85km Road Classic
100km Road Classic
28km Mountain Bike
33km Mountain Bike
40km Mountain Bike
50km Mountain Bike
At the conclusion of your ride, we encourage you to enjoy the festivities of the event. A variety of Food and Drink stalls will be available at the start / finish line.
The Ride4Research course will be serviced by support staff from 8.00am until 1.00pm. For the safety of cyclists and volunteers a cut-off time will be imposed at Dunnstown at 1pm. Cyclists should consider this cut-off time and their cycling fitness levels when entering the event. Cyclists who arrive at Dunnstown after 1.00pm will be able to continue along the course but there will not be marshals after this time.
