Participants are required to present themselves at the start of their respective route and use the following equipment appropriately:

– Lights with sufficient charge to last at least 6 hours (for the 300km route);
– Helmet; – GPS device with a battery sufficient to cover the chosen route’s duration;
– Suitable clothing (including a waterproof jacket);
– 1.5 liters (or more) of liquids;
– First aid kit;
– Kit for repairing breakdowns, punctures, and spare parts (brake pads, oil, multitool, pump, tire levers, inner tubes, CO2 cartridges, chain quick links);
– Mobile phone.

The 37.5 km ride is an eco-friendly ride (maximum controlled speed of 25 km/h, stops every 25 km), so it will be the responsibility of individual cyclists to undergo the necessary medical checks for sports fitness and take out personal insurance against damage to themselves and others. As a precaution, a non-competitive medical certificate will still be required; the recreational motor certificate is not accepted because, above 20 km in length, the regulator does not recognize it as a valid certificate.

General Info and Inquiries:

Is it a competitive race?
No, it is a non-competitive event organized in collaboration with 3T Cycling and associated partners. However, symbolic prizes will be given to the winners in each category.

Can a mountain bike be used?
Yes, it is also open to mountain bikes.

Can GPS be used via cell phones?
Yes, as long as the battery life is guaranteed for the entire route.

Can two water bottles be used?
Yes, while keeping in mind that a minimum of 1.5 liters of fluids is required.

Is the 75km start on two days?
There will be two starts, one on Saturday and another on Sunday. The route is completed during the course of one day and will be the same for both days.

Is the 37.5 km start on two days?
The same applies as for the 75km.

When will the track be communicated? Can it be downloaded?
The maps and GPS tracks of the routes can be consulted on the official website www.jeroboam.bike and will be provided before the start, also through printed “roadbooks” delivered at the village.

What certificate is needed?
For participation, a suitable and valid medical certificate is required. For Italian residents: for the 300km and 150km routes, a certificate of eligibility for competitive cycling is required; for the 75km and 37.5km routes, a non-competitive certificate is required.

Is it necessary to be a member of a sports club?
For Italian participants, it is necessary to have a sports membership for the current year issued by the Italian Cycling Federation (F.C.I.) or affiliated with the Italian Cycling Federation for the current year. For participants of other nationalities, it is necessary to have a valid membership card for the current year issued by the cycling federation of their country recognized by the International Cycling Union (U.C.I.). Those who do not have a valid sports membership must activate the “CSI membership card” (costing €10) which includes insurance coverage.

Does the €10 sports club membership card also cover the medical examination?
No, the €10 membership fee includes insurance coverage but does not cover the medical certification required for participation in the event.

Does a track and field permit count?
No, a suitable medical certificate (for competitive or non-competitive cycling) is required depending on the length and type of route for which one is registered.

Can you register on-site?
