The cycle ride would be much more expensive to put on if it were not for the generous support of local businesses and organisations. There are links to our main sponsors web sites on the home page, but there are many others who have provided services and backup:
First, thanks to OA Sports for providing meeting rooms for us to organise the event
The water is available at the check points, with cups provided by Heath Lodge Vets.
The marshals at every junction on the route are mostly local Rotarians, but we also have mobile marshals on motorbikes.
All these en route facilities have been coordinated by Raynet, an organisation of radio amateurs who can talk directly to the police, ambulance and all the other emergency services to give a very swift response. They also answer the hotline during the event. You might have seen their base station with its huge aerial near the start finish line.
The start/finish line structure has been provided courtesy of Hire One. Drinks and burgers are provided by Grove Farm Meat, and ice creams come from Noviellos Ices.
Finally we have to say a big thank you to Matt Adams, editor of the Herts Advertiser, and to the staff at Oaklands College without whose support the event would not happen.
