FAIR PLAY AND YOUR SAFETY
Farmers and local people form an essential part of our community and they are crucial to the county’s economy. You will almost certainly encounter farmers during your ride and we expect you to give them priority so that they can carry out their work with the minimum of hindrance. You have all day to enjoy the event, farmers have a business to run.
It is also possible that you will pass horses and farm animals. If you approach a horse and rider from behind, they will be unaware of your presence therefore you must stop riding, announce your presence and wait for the rider to call you past. If you ride towards a horse and rider, reduce your speed to 5mph, avoid any sudden movement and stop if requested.
Marshals and photographers will be located around the routes to ensure fair play and safety. As the event is run under the rules of The Highway Code Dyfed Powys Police motorcyclists will also be assisting with safety. It is very important to the majority of cyclists that events are not spoilt by riders who feel they can drop litter, hold up traffic or ride dangerously. To protect the event, the National Park and our riders, we will exclude any rider who breaches our code of conduct and we will charge any rider accessing our feed-stations who has not entered the event the late entry fee.
Every year someone spoils their day by injuring themselves and damaging their bike because they’ve ridden too quickly for the conditions; please try to make sure it isn’t you.
