NUMBER BOARDS

 

  • If you are doing Like2Bike for the first time, you will need to purchase a number board.
  • This number board must be attached to your child's bicycle.
  • The number board has a timing chip attached to the back of the board which should read once your child crosses the timing line
  • You will need to enter each event seperatley, but you keep the same timing board
  • Please ensure your child does not reverse back through the finish zone and this will confuse the timing
  • If the board is lost, there will be a R50 replacement fee
  • We will publish the links for results on facebook by the Monday after the event
  • If you would like to swop out your distance, please go to the time keepers after registration
  • Please note that the timing company is independent from Like2Bike. We will do our best to tackle any   queries that come our way, and assist where best possible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EMERGENCY/MEDICS

 

  • We have 2 dedicated medics on the Like2Bike events.
  • One roaming and one based at the finish.
  • There is an emergency contact number on the bottom of the number board, this will phone straight through to the race director.
  • Please try pin pint a distance, or land mark for the medic to be able to get to the correct position.
  • There will be sweepers on bicycles that will follow the course, at the end of the event

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WATERPOINT

 

  • Please ensure your child rides with hydration on the day
  • There will be a water point at the best possible position on the route.
  • FIR SPORTS LAB and water will be available at the water point
  • We aim to cater for the 15km RACE, 10km RACE, 10km FUN RIDE and 5km FUN RIDE.
  • Due to the nature of the course, we cannot position the water point exactly half way - but do aim to put it in a place where the distances will be able to access and rehydrate.

  • We have independent riders, with no knowledge of the routes, riding the routes to see if the boards make sense. The responsibility falls strictly on you to follow the course accurately.
  • NEVER CROSS OVER Red and white danger tape, don't bunny hop it either, if you cross it you are off course.
  • In places where there is orange and yellow barrier mesh, please don't go though it. It is there to indicate a no-go zone.
  • Where there are Chicken Run, trail merge or wrong route boards, please take note and take care.
  • Please listen to the marshals and volunteers and show respect at all times.
  • Please do not leave any litter behind you on route. Kindly take everything off the trail with you.
