Saturday Evening Camping
The Showground Committee has offered RATR riders the opportunity to camp at the showground for Saturday night. There is plenty of open space with showers, just about any style of camping would be supported. Camping will cost $22* per site with no surcharge per person. Showground personnel will collect any camp fees.
On the Day
Please remember CoVid-19 management. Keep socially distanced and disinfect your hands (sanitiser will be available on site). Masks are not discouraged.
Parking, rider registration and the start will occur at the Macksville Showground off Rodeo Dr (via Ferry St). There is heaps of parking and this is also the location of the finish line!

Riders can register and collect their number and goodies from 7:30am until 8:30am. Riders wishing to enter on the day should arrive earlier rather than later. All entries on the day will incur a late fee of $10. We are hoping to support cashless payments for late entry.
Riders will need to gather at the Showground for an 8:45am briefing. All riders will start at 9am. There will be 2 lead vehicles the 25km/50km riders should mass behind the second vehicle. Both groups will have a ‘neutral zone’ where there respective lead escort vehicle will keep the group together. Riders must not pass the lead vehicle. The neutral zone for the 85km ride may be longer if the roads are wet to manage the group over a wooden bridge at the top of Wallace St.
After the Ride
Unfortunately due to the current CoVid-19 restrictions we are encouraging riders to socially distance, grab something from the Lions van and head home 🙁 … maybe win 2021 we can hang together and enjoy the post ride more.
