FAQ

1Will the salt water and sand destroy my bike?
Cefn Sidan beach is a very firm beach which makes it very fast to ride on. We are confident that it won't destroy your bike. We will also have bike washes on site, to give the option of cleaning your bike immediately afterwards. If you are not sure, ask anyone who has entered before.
2I've entered, but now I can't make it. Can I get a refund?
We are unable to refund entries, but we will allow transfer of names free of charge - all changes must be made 14 days prior to the event.
3Do I need a fat-bike?
Absolutely not, the majority of the sand is so hard and fast that you don't need a fatbike. In fact we think the course will be suitable for all off-road bikes, so if you want to bring a cyclocross bike, you are welcome to.
4Will there be any races for Under 14's?
Yes, we will have races for U8's, U10's and U12's separate to the main race
In addition, we will allow any age to enter the main event, so long as they have parental consent.
There will also be a parent & child pairs category, again open to all ages.
5Do I need a racing licence?
No, Tide to Tide is not run under British Cycling and therefore no license is required.
6When does the 6 hours finish?
All laps must be COMPLETED before 8pm. Therefore, if you finish at 8:01pm that lap will not be counted.
7Can we camp?
Camping is included as part of a package.
8Are dogs allowed in the park and the beach?
Yes, dogs are allowed in all areas of the park or beach and its a fantastic place for walking. We ask anyone bringing a dog to ensure its kept under control at all times, especially when the race is in progress. Cefn Sidan is a blue flag beach, but the restrictions are only in place from May to September.
