START AND FINISH

The joint start for the 95 km and 40 km rides is from Anttolanhovi at 10:00.

SAFETY

The traffic regulations must be followed. Road sections and the cycling route will not be closed to other traffic.

The route runs along the right edge of the road, taking other traffic into account. The long-distance route (95km) has quite steep downhill slopes, so adjust your cycling speed in accordance with your own cycling skills and keep an adequate safety distance in the front.


PLEASE NOTE

The 95 km route has fast downhill slopes, so adjust your speed based on your own cycling skills and the condition of the road, while also taking into account other cyclists.

All participants must wear a cycling helmet. If you do not have a helmet, you cannot participate in the event. We will make sure everyone is wearing a helmet before they start.


REFRESHMENTS

There are three refreshment points along the 95 km route, and these all offer water, sport beverages, nuts, raisins, and pickles, and possibly other snacks as well (further information to follow).

There is one refreshment point on the 40 km route. The organizer's refreshment points are only open on the day of the event. The organizer reserves the right to change the products provided by the refreshment points if necessary.

After completing the route, cyclists will be able to enjoy some tasty food in the immediate vicinity of the finish line. Anttolanhovi is responsible for providing this local food.


WASHING

Showers and sauna are available at Anttolanhovi.
