- Light requirements:
- Lights will be required for any competitor starting a lap after 17:30.
- Defining a light? You must have:
- One red rear and one white front light.
- The rear light should be on solid and does not need to blind people 50km away enjoying the sofa at home.
- The front light should be bright enough for you to feel comfortable riding through a pine forest at night. If it can blind the person 50km away enjoying the sofa I suppose we’ll get one more angry spectator!
- Don’t have lights? Ask around – you never know who might have some spare sets laying around.
