THE BIKE INFORMATION
What the Hell is a Gran Fondo?
The Bike is known as a Gran Fondo style of bike event. In Italian it basically translates to ‘big ride’ whilst this is a timed event , this is not a race, its an opportunity for riders to set a time which can be improved on in future years.
‘The Bike’ is a mass start and as such we ask that athletes self seed themselves. If youre a quicker rider make your way to the front, if you are at the event to enjoy the scenery and a bit of banter maybe go towards the back of the pack. The only exception to seeding will be ‘The Lot’ athletes competing in ‘The Full’ who we will cheer on and send off before the main group.
Mechanical support for minor issues will be available. Riders must bring their own spares, C02 canisters / pumps, levers, etc.
‘The Bike’ course will operate under controlled conditions by authorised Traffic Controllers. All riders must follow Road Cycling Rules and be aware of their surroundings.
Powerade, refill stations for water and portaloos will be available at the aid stations. Exact locations of aid stations and medical support will be confirmed closer to the event. Riders are advised to slow down and observe caution whilst going through the aid stations.
Are triathlon/TT bikes allowed?
All types of bikes are permitted on ‘The Bike’, Road bikes, triathlon bikes, and mountain bikes, all are permitted. If you opt to ride a Triathlon/TT bike there are rules that riders must abide to to ensure the safety of themselves and other riders. If using a Triathlon/TT bike you may not ride in a bunch whilst being on your aero bars, you may only ride in a bunch whilst being on the bull horns/hoods.
eBikes will be permitted in all distances at the Coffs Classic. The eBike option must be selected when registering for the event. It is the riders responsibility to ensure they have sufficient batteries to complete the ride.
Can you ride in a pack/draft?
If you are on a road bike or flat bar bike yes you can ride in groups, please ensure that you stay left to ensure faster riders can overtake on the right hand side. If you are on a TT bike and on the aerobars you must ensure a 7m gap between you and the rider in front.
Mandatory clothing/saftey items
It is mandatory that all riders wear an Australian Safety Standards approved helmet whenever they are on their bike. Riders must also ensure that torso’s are covered at all times (no shirt completely unzipped hero’s).
