Every effort is made by the SRC to ensure all competitors complete their ride safely. Key points are marshalled and warning signs and direction signs are placed around the course. However, safety is mostly dependent on how riders conduct themselves. Read any special safety instructions at the Signing-on Sheet at the HQ and any ‘notes for the evening’ posted at the start


The Severn RC strongly recommends all riders wear a Protective Helmet whilst competing in the ‘Evening 10’ Series. All competitors under the age of 18 years or Juniors must wear a properly fitted protective helmet.

Rear lights

The Severn RC strongly recommends riders fit and use a working rear light. Very bright flashing rear lights are now available at low cost.


Rules of the road

The event is held on open roads. Riders must follow the rules of the road. The CTT rules state that competitors ‘must observe the law of the land’ and ‘in making any turn’ must ‘ensure that it is safe to do so.’ Any riders who fail to obey the law of the land, for example crossing into the opposite carriageway, riding with their head down or riding dangerously, or otherwise contravening CTT Rules and Regulations may be disqualified.


Marshals have no authority to stop traffic, so do not rely on them to do so. Marshals may see a hazard you are not aware of, so please obey any warning the marshal may give and be prepared to stop.


Any questions please contact Tom Bertenshaw (Chairman) or Paul Chapman (event coordinator)
