Bicycles are transported by truck a few days before the race. Bicycles will be picked up in Barcelona and loaded onto trucks for shipping.
Riders travelling to Almería on their own with their bicycles are not included.
Participants can get an “official box” from the organization free of charge to ensure that each bicycle takes up the same space, speed up loading and protect the bicycles.
These boxes are made of cardboard and measure 160 × 90 × 22 cm. The maximum weight of the boxes with the bicycles in them is 20 kg.
You can pack other elements along with the bicycle as long as the box stays under the maximum weight. The organization will weigh the boxes before loading them into the transport trucks. If the maximum weight is exceeded, the organization reserves the right to remove contents in order to reduce weight until the maximum allowed weight is reached.
To coordinate the collection of bicycles in Barcelona, the organization asks participants to fill in a form indicating their preferences.
When participants reach Almería on scrutineering day, they will have to pick up their bicycles (as delivered in the boxes) from the designated collection point. No material should be left inside the boxes because different boxes will be delivered at the end of the race.
DELIVERY OF BICYCLES BEFORE THE RACE
There are three options available for shipping the bicycles to Almería. Participants are required to indicate their preference on the form:
Option 1: bringing the bicycle in person
Option 2: delivery using paid assistance (check with the shop)
Option 3: shipping with the rider’s own courier (get in touch with the organization to manage delivery of the official box)
COLLECTION OF BICYCLES AT THE END OF THE RACE
Bicycles will be collected at the end of the race and returned to the organization’s trucks. Participants must pack and hand over their bicycles between their arrival at the finish and 6:30 pm.
Once the bicycles have arrived in Barcelona, participants have 3 options for pick-up at the warehouse:
Option 1: collection in person at the warehouse
Option 2: collection using paid assistance (check with the shop)
Option 3: the rider’s own courier
