Please take extreme care of volunteers and fellow competitors at the Bidon Exchange. If you are discarding and/or receiving a bidon, please slow down on approach and move to the LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE ROAD to allow other participants a clear course to pass on the right. Participants are reminded to slow down to ensure you secure the item you require.
