The Haldon Heroic is a CX Sportive / Gravel Ride that is sanctioned and insured through British Cycling. All routes are fully signed and marshalled. We provide downloadable electronic routes compatible with most devides or you can follow the route on your mobile phone using the free RWGPS app
This year all participants MUST be pre-registered. We are unable to accept any entry-on-the-day - regardless of the circumstances. All participants will be sent a Ride Pack, one week in advance of the event. This will contain all you need for the event day and will also give you your Rider Number and Start Time. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we will not have any start-line briefings and there will be no 'start waves'. We will have a contactless - 'park and ride' system to help maintain social distancing.
There is a Feed Station on both the CX-Mega & CX-Medio routes that will operate on a 'takeaway service' - You will be able to stop and pick up ride refreshments but you will not be able to wait around or rest as we are required to prevent gatherings over 15 in number. The Feed Station is ajacent to a park where you can sit and relax or you can head off and choose your own spot for any rest period you require. There will be a catering van & coffee van at Exeter Racecourse for any post ride refreshments you may require.
There will be professional photographers out on the course, taking action photos as a memento of your day with us (photos are optional and not included as part of your entry fee).
There will also be a professional Sports Massage Therapist available at the HQ (optional service - not included as part of your entry fee) and a Bike Wash Bay (free to use - included with entry fee).
All finishers will receive our unique Haldon Heroic Medal.
