FAQ’s

Is there an entry charge?

There is no admission charge, however you are asked to donate for parking via the bucket-shakers. The event is run by volunteers and all money raised helps cover the cost of road closures, cones, toilets etc, with any surplus going to the village community organisations and charities (see about the event). Alternatively, you can make a donation on paypal here…

Is there parking for bikes?!

Yes, the village can accommodate thousands of bikes in a variety of locations. Marshals will direct you to the most suitable space based on your arrival point and time. The marshals work hard to keep bikes flowing freely through the village, please do help them by following their guidance 🙂
