Signing On & Welcome

Signing on opens at 08:00 and remains open until 09:15. The ride starts no later than 09:30 so please be here in good time as, despite the modest distance, this is a challenge and only a handful of riders ever complete in under 5 hours, with the majority taking between 5-6 hours riding time.


At HQ signing on you will receive a warm welcome from our team and have access to a range of benefits including:

  • Plenty of seating with magazines laid out for you to read before and after the event
  • Two changing rooms for men and six toilets
  • One separate changing room for ladies and one toilet
  • Shower facilities



We usually have some RVC branded gifts from previous years and these are typically for sale at the nominal fee, but look out for any marked pricing on the day or multi-buy offers.

We don’t have a secure storage area so please secure your belongings in a car or only bring what you need for the ride.

We don’t provide maps, the route has over 300 signs on and we have Garmin files available for download. **Please note, the route is subject to change due to local traffic and roadworks, or any risks identified by the team marking the route, so even if you have a Garmin file, look out for the RVC signs.

This is a unique website which will require a more modern browser to work!
