Applications for this years ride will close at 6pm on Sunday 22nd June.

This is to allow the organisers to prepare for both the Three Day Challenge and the Main Ride

 

We welcome you to Contact Us with good reasons why we should accept you entry into the ride after entries have closed, i.e. large sponsorship, providing additional support crews etc.

All requests will be considered by the organisers at their subsequent meeting. There is no guarantee of any additional ride places becoming available.

We are again starting the 2014 Bike Ride from Molineux Football Stadium, Waterloo Road, Wolverhampton.

This year we leave at 07:00 (Check in opens 06:00). We have done this to try and help reduce the disruption to traffic in the city centre.

The satellite image below shows an aerial shot of the ground centered on the South end and Whitmore Hill.

On the map I have marked two large areas indicated by "A" & "B" along with a thick red line.  The areas are marked as follows:

  • "A" denotes the check in / registration area for riders.
  • NO PRIVATE VEHICLES IN THIS AREA OR ON WHITMORE HILL, THIS IS USED BY OTHER BUSINESSES AND ACCESS MUST BE MAINTAINED.
  • LEAD SUPPORT VEHICLE ONLY ON WHITMORE HILL ONLY
  • "B" denotes a car park accessed from Waterloo Road. This has been kindly made available to us for parking of riders cars.  As you can see it only has limited spaces so will be used on a first come first serve basis.
  • The thick Red line is the start of the ride, going down Whitmore Hill across the junction Waterloo Road and then into Newhampton Road East.

Please Note Wolverhampton Wanderers accept no responsibilities for vehicles left on site, no security is offered and cars/contents are left at owners risk. It is suggested to not leave cars parked overnight.

Once you have checked in on the morning can riders please try and keep clear of Whitmore Hill until the start to help reduce the congestion with new riders arriving and to allow the support crew to get ready for the start.

The Emergency Contact Form is available from your control panel, thanks to the 3 Riders who have tested it for me.

Please login with your normal website password and update your details.

Also update your Age, the phone number you are carrying whilst riding, Medical & Food Allergies etc.

This information will help us support you and will only be held on ride days in the Commasaire vehicle and rear support van.

All riders who have not entered their details by Monday will receive daily emails until they do.

This form is also your agreement to the ride Terms & Conditions.
