RIDE DINAMICS

 

Art. 26.-

The ride will take place on ROADS OPEN TO TRAFFIC. All the participants must scrupulously follow the rules from the Road Traffic Code, paying special attention to the obligation to ride on the correct side of the road, and respecting the rules of priority at the crossroads. Those who don’t respect these rules will be immediately excluded from the event and will be banned from taking part in its future editions. While completing their registration, each participant acknowledges that they have downloaded and accepted the Term of Responsibility provided by the organisation, in which they declare that they know and accept the risks that may come with the participation in a bicycle touring event open to traffic.

Art. 27.In order to allow the participants to have a clear path, the organisation vehicles leading the ride will adopt an appropriate speed so that they won’t hinder the progression of the participants. However, if the conditions deem it necessary, the organisation’s vehicles may condition the speed of the participants, and these will not be allowed to overtake the vehicles at the front of the ride. Athletes who don’t obey this rule will be removed from the framework of the event from the moment they overtake the leading vehicles, and they shall proceed at their own risk.

 

Art. 28.It’s strictly forbidden for athletes to receive any assistance from vehicles not belonging to the organisation. It’s also forbidden for the vehicles of any accompanying persons to be in the midst of the cyclists taking part in the event. Any breach of these rules can be noted and communicated to the organisation by the authorities and other members of the organisation. The organisation will provide the necessary information concerning the places where it is advisable to watch the athletes go by and support them. The security forces involved in the ride’s framework will block the circulation of support vehicles in the midst of the cyclists in the ride, therefore enforcing the Traffic laws.

 

Art. 29.The event will have a framework of security forces comprised by members of the PSP and GNR, who will ensure that traffic rules are observed by all the elements present in the event, and by all other vehicles circulating.

 

Art. 30.Timekeeping for each athlete will be made with the use of chips. Its use is mandatory and the athlete must respect the rules for its correct positioning and use. The incorrect use or lack of a chip will mean that the athlete will not have a time registered at the checkpoints placed by the organisation, therefore leading to the disqualification of the athlete, who will not figure on the final results’ list and will not receive his participation diploma. The checkpoints and timekeeping points will be located at the start, arrival, and at other points along the course which will be previously revealed to the participants.

Art. 31.In order to ensure the integrity and safety of the participants, there are checkpoints along the course, where time limits will be defined. Athletes reaching these checkpoints after the time limit will have to withdraw from the ride and will be picked up by the organisation’s broom wagon and taken to the arrival area. The time limit to complete the Gran Fondo will be 7 hours and 45 minutes and the finish line will be closed at 4:15 p.m.

The participants who opt to go on by their own means will have to hand the frontal plate with their participant number at the checkpoint or to another member of the organisation, and will from that moment on be excluded by the organisation and other elements in the ride from the event’s framework, taking full responsibility from then on and continuing at their own risk.

 

Art. 32.The athletes who quit during the ride must approach or call a member of the organisation to announce their withdrawal. When the absence of an athlete is noted, search and rescue forces may be activated. Disrespect for this rule will rend the athlete who didn’t communicate their withdrawal responsible for the costs of the search and rescue process. Furthermore, the athlete will be banned from taking part in future editions of the event.

Art. 33.The athletes must scrupulously respect the timetable, namely the starting time, 8:30 a.m., making sure that they start before the broom wagon. If they don’t, they will be left out of the event’s framework and will continue at their own risk.

Start checkpoint closing time (km 0) – 10 minutes after the start.

 

Art. 34.The organisation will accompany the ride with medical assistance and ambulances. In case of necessity, the participants should request help from the members of the organisation who will then take the necessary action, activating the assistance that may be needed.

 

Art. 35.Athletes who suffer an accident during the event and must therefore use the emergency services, medical assistance or evacuation by the rescue teams, should inform the organisation of the incident within a maximum of 3 days after the event’s date by writing to the following email address: info@granfondolisboa.com  This communication is essential to ensure insurance coverage to possible injuries or illness.

 

Art. 36.The organisation will provide mechanical assistance during the ride, trying to fix the mechanical problems that are possible to fix in a ride’s scenario. In case of a breakdown, labour will be free but substitution parts will be charged on site to the athletes that may need them. Therefore, the participants should carry some cash with them during the ride in order to cover such expenses. If the participant doesn’t have enough cash to cover the cost of the parts that have been used, they shall sign a debit note handed by the mechanical assistance team member, and they shall redeem it right after the end of the event, at the secretariat or at the information desk. Puncture repairs by the mechanical assistance team are excluded. Mechanical assistance will be provided by stationary and by mobile teams, which will move along the course. Due to the ride’s dynamics or positioning difficulties, or even the complexity of the breakdown, this service may not ensure assistance to all participants. The existence of this mechanical assistance doesn’t clear the participants from the responsibility of preparing their bicycles in an appropriate manner, ensuring that they are in their best condition as they line up at the start. The organisation can never be held responsible for the withdrawal of an athlete due to a lack of mechanical assistance.

 

Art. 37.The athletes on the ride must ensure they transport enough food and drink for the necessary fuelling and rehydration during the race. However, the organisation will set up refuelling stations in places to be announced before the event, where some food and drinks will be offered.

 

Art. 38.For safety reasons, it is forbidden for the participants to use headphones during the ride, in order to listen to music or to use the mobile phone.

 

Art. 39.During the event, the participant must carry a mobile phone with the number provided in the registration form (or some other as long as the organisation is informed in due time), some sort of ID and enough cash in case of wanting to take advantage of parts made available by the mechanical assistance during the ride. It adverse weather is forecast, the organisation may make it compulsory for athletes to carry extra gear, such as thermal blankets, windproof clothing or waterproofs.

 

Art. 40.- The organisation has the right to make changes in the ride’s course and the way it works, if and when it may see fit, without the need to compensate the participants for this reason.

 


 

ECO RESPONSIBILITY

 

Art. 41.The participants must behave in a responsible manner when it comes to cleanliness and preservation of the environment in all areas used by the event, from the course to the starting and finishing area. It’s strictly prohibited to litter, before, during and after the ride. It’s the participants’ responsibility to keep the packaging of the food and drinks used by them during the ride. At the end of the ride the organisation will have appropriate containers available for the athletes to place the rubbish they may be carrying. Disrespect for this rule implies the immediate removal of the participant from the event as well as a ban from taking part in any other event organised by Podium Events.
