3M UK Plc, Lee & Son Roofing, SportsMatch Bedford 2 Day 2002


Race HQs -

There will be plenty of car parking in the HQ grounds on both days - please do not park on the road outside, please follow the directions given by the car park marshal on Sunday. Competitors, please do not park in the spaces allocated for race officials – this area is reserved to allow the formation of the Race Convoy and to provide a safe start for all.  

On Saturday, there will be shower and changing areas available. Unfortunately, on Sunday, there are no showers – we apologise for this and realise that some competitors will be travelling a long way after the race. Signing on each day will be in the entrance foyer. Snacks and light refreshments will be available on both days. Riders, helpers, sponsors, officials and spectators may all use this facility. A (free) meal for riders will be available between stages 1 & 2 at Cranfield University Students Union. The meal will be served from 12:45hrs onwards. Lunch will also be provided on Sunday, from 13:30hrs (tickets provided for both when signing on for Saturday's stage), prior to the prize presentation.
