It is a handicap road race event, which means riders are put together in groups based on their riding speed. The groups are then assigned a handicap with the aim that all the riders will be reaching the finish at approximately the same time, and therefore every rider has a chance of being the first to cross the finish line. It's a friendly and supportive format, and there will be groups for all riding speeds, come give it a try!
