About the Event

Info for Riders

Reliability rides are organised bicycle rides that challenge the rider to ride and complete a set course. They are not races, though events are often quite challenging and are usually held early in the year as training rides. Most often Reliability routes are not signed or marshalled. Entrants should possess the physical fitness to complete the course unaided and be experienced and confident riders. Riders should ensure they are self-sufficient in terms of refreshments, adept at navigation and following route details and able to deal with mechanical problems. On return to the start point each rider will receive a Completion Certificate from VCLE.
