The last thing anyone wants to happen on any event is to take a wrong turn and take an unplanned diversion.
We’ve always used A4 size signage, published GPX mapping and loaded to the latest smart phone application (for 2015 RidewithGPS) but there is always potential to improve.
Last year we introduced blue temporary road paint to the more remote areas which simply washed away after the event, and this year we’ll be able to give further ‘clarity’ thanks to new corex signage courtesy of local solicitors and estate agents Lightfoots.
Commercial partner, triathlete and cross channel swimmer Joe Middleton is no stranger to negotiating courses when he’s not negotiating for clients. “It’s tough maintaining concentration when you’re pushing hard and fatigue begins to sets in” said Joe. “Lightfoots have a longstanding history in the local community so we’re happy to be supporting the guys at Allezsportives and the cyclists riding their events”.
One things for sure – This year the route ahead will have greater clarity thanks to the generosity of Joe and the team at Lightfoots. If you haven’t used their services in person, you may just meet him on one of our rides antidepressant bupropion. He’ll be one of the riders on the front!
