    Final Instructions Bucks Road Sportive 2017

    A big thanks to those that have pre -entered the West Drayton’s 6th Bucks Road Sportive, we are looking forward to seeing you on the day.
    For those that have missed the cut off for online entries, entry on the day will be available.
    Both courses have been recently road tested and apart from a few potholes are in reasonable conditions.
    The routes will be marked. For those who have ridden the events before the 100km route is more or less unchanged apart from a small revision after Gerrard’s Cross to avoid a short section of a dual carriageway.
    The 85km route has had a bit more tinkering to take a safer route from the bottom of Bradenham to West Wycombe and now also goes over Winter Hill, please ensure if you are using GPS that you down load the correct up to date routes.
    Riders will start in groups of approximately 10 riders at 2 minute intervals, we will call up the groups in the standard times that people expect to finish in so that riders of equal ability will form the groups.

    Standard times
    100 km
    Gold -Sub 3.5 hrs -18MPH
    Silver-Sub 4.15 hrs- 15 MPH
    Bronze-Sub 5 hrs-12.5MPH

    85KM
    Gold-Sub 3hrs-17.5 MPH
    Silver-Sub 3.75 hrs-14.2 MPH
    Bronze-Sub 4.5 Hrs-11.78MPH

    The routes will be marked with fluorescent arrows endorsed with W.Drayton MBC if there is no arrow at a junction the default position is straight on, the split between the 85/100km route will be clearly marked please ensure you follow the correct route
    Please only start your ride when you have had the on the day briefing and are told to go, on the return to the HQ please attend the signing on table to record your time
    Once you have registered your finish and collected your medal take your number to the kitchen for your free cuppa. There will be food which can be purchased and also a licensed bar at the HQ
    All entrants will get a free energy bar when signing on and collecting their number, there will be heavily discounted CNP flapjacks, energy bars and gels available if people wish to purchase extra stock. There will be no feed stations out on the route.
    The route chosen is generally fairly quiet traffic wise however the routes go through Marlow and Gerrard’s Cross, both these areas are likely to be busy so please take this into consideration.
    Also on the 85km route there is sharp adverse camber corner after Speen once again consider this and ride within your ability limits

    Remember this is not a race and the rules of the road need to be observed

    Above all have a good enjoyable ride, if you have a serious mechanical a sag wagon will be available from 11a..m to make use of this ring the HQ contact number 07860 126356 but remember in places mobile signal coverage is poor.
    The Headquarters are situated at The Chiltern Social Club, Maple Lodge Close, Maple Cross, Rickmansworth WD3 2SQ. On arriving please follow the car parking marshals’ instructions.
    The HQ will be open from 7.45 a.m. with signing on from 8 a.m. and the first group of riders will depart at 9.30 a.m.
