FINAL INSTRUCTIONS

Thank you for entering the rearranged annual Cambridgeshire Rumble sportive.
Please read this final information to help speed up your registration and ride during the day.
Please read we have had to introduce opening and closing times for the feed stops, and route cut off times along the route for everyone’s safety. They all are based on a 9mph average so to help you achieve your goals for the day.

EVENT HQ 

The St Ivo One Leisure centre in Westwood Road, St Ives PE27 6WU will host the registration from 07.30 am in the Zest Cafe area adjacent to the reception. There is plenty of car parking on site.
Tea and coffee plus prepacked cakes and sandwiches will be available for sale.
PLEASE NOTE registration will not open before 07.30am and we will process long route riders first so to enable everyone to meet the start times. Registration will close at 09.00.

START TIMES FOR ALL RIDES and CUT OFF TIMES AT THE SPLITS.

LONG ROUTE 8.00 to 8.30 (WOODNEWTON 1ST FEED CUT OFF 11.45 directed onto medium route)

MEDIUM ROUTE 8.30 to 08.45

Finish is at the Ivo centre same as start point

Please remember to log out with our officials at the Start so we know you have started; this is for your safety and our records of your whereabouts and ultimately your safe return to the finish.

There will be a short but serious pre ride briefing, so please ensure that you and those you plan to ride together get to the start in good time

FEED STOPS

There are 2 FEEDS on the LONG ride. 1st at 38 miles and 2nd at 71miles

All feeds are at WOODNEWTON VILLAGE HALL and will open from 09.45 and close at 14.00.

There is one Feed on the MEDIUM ride at WOODNEWTON VILLAGE HALL at 38miles. This feed will open at 09.45 and close at 14.00. 

The route passes Holly Lodge cyclist café with 15 miles to go as a backup unofficial stop. 

Again, please ensure you have enough nutritional foods and full bottles before you set off from St Ives   

ROUTE

The route is fully arrowed with warning signs for your and others safety. Please always adhere to these instructions. Sample arrows and warning signage will be shown at the start. These will be where required and situated on each turn with a confirmation after the turn we will endeavour to have confirmation arrows every 1 to 2 miles along the route.

ROUTE CHANGES

ROUTE CHANGES DUE TO CYCLE RACE ON OUR ROUTE

There are route changes after the Woodnewton feed stop that are minor and offer some benefit with the missing of 1 climb. The changes have been made on the GPX FILE AND MAPS so please ensure your download is less than 24hours before the ride. The route changes add approximately 2 miles and is the same for both long and medium rides.

The route will go along the opposite way to a major cycle race in the area so please adhere to any race officials for everyone’s safety and enjoyment, this should not delay your ride.

MECHANICAL SUPPORT

We have a broom wagon for terminal mechanicals and the Feed at Woodnewton will have some tools and spares to enable minor repairs.

We expect everyone to look after minor repairs and punctures themselves.

EMERGENCY TELEPHONE NUMBERS

HQ /START /FINISH/Broom Wagon   07876712098 please give your ride number and location.

Please note mobile reception is very poor on parts of the routes and a text often works.

FINISH

Please ensure you return to the finish and log back in, so we don’t start looking around the countryside for you. If you leave the route and don’t plan to finish, please contact the finish telephone number or text, with your name and ride number.

The finish is the same location as the Start where you will receive your food voucher for the Zest Café. The voucher for a cup of tea or coffee will help replenish your reserves.

Please have an enjoyable and safe ride and please remember this is a sportive and not a race, so please always adhere to the HIGHWAY CODE and be always courteous to all road users and fellow cyclists.
See you all Sunday.

Entries will be accepted on the day at a £5 surcharge. Please bring cash if possible due to a poor mobile signal in the area for contactless payments.

Cycling_weekly report

We apologise for the postponement that unfortunately meant we lost the HQ on the day, with no alternative available at short notice.
We hope that the Rumble will remain on your  list of rides and with this move to later in the season we hope that warmer conditions will prevail. The routes are the same but with slight changes in the long route to use the Woodnewton location twice.
However, do not be fooled as the distance and sometimes with the wind could offer a good challenge for the 100 milers on a revised route for 2022.  If you want a good challenge the  72-miler medium ride will be good enough test for the legs.
HQ and registration will be held at St Ivo Centre where free tea and coffee will be available before and after the ride.
  We plan to have mechanical support at the start for quick bike checks if required.
The feed at Woodnewton Village Hall will have opening and closing times for the longer routes and times will be posted at Registration based on 9mph average.
On your return to the finish, everyone will receive a medal, and snack.
