Race Village Services

Located at the finish line of each stage Race Village will contain everything you need post ride so you can relax, soak up the atmosphere, wash that bike, refuel and cheer on fellow riders. 

On Course Info


The Reef to Reef uses an advanced electronic timing system that provides all competitors with an accurate race time based on when they cross that Start and Finish lines. The seat post sticker contains a low frequency chip so it is important that this is applied and maintained as the instructions in your race pack.

Diversions and Time Penalties

The Reef to Reef has been designed for riders of all abilities that are looking to challenge themselves. As a result our objective is to keep all riders in the event for as long as it is possible but without compromising the safety of other riders or members of the event team.

  • Diversions – the Race Manager will monitor the pace of each group with an expectation that all riders can maintain a minimum speed of 10 – 12 kmh so that they can complete the course within the allotted time limit. Failure to do so will mean that riders, at the discretion of the Race Director, can be diverted onto a shorter route to the finish.
  • Time Penalties – the Race Director has the ability to apply a time penalty to any rider that is found to have not complied with any of the following rules;
    • Failing to dismount at a marked dismount point or comply with the road rules.
    • Littering or careless disposal of ties on course.
    • Offensive language or antisocial behaviour that negatively impacts the ride experience of another competitor.
