**Here's the rules, so if you need clarification ask now.**

This is an event to encourage all kinds of cycling and create excitement about riding for all people with a bicycle in the Dulwich Hill Bicycle Club. As like in the Giro D’maggio run earlier this year a number of different classifications. But a few modifications have been made. Instead of the General Classification being the most kms ridden it will now be an accumulative point score of all the categories and the most kms ridden will be its own category. The other major change is to the White jersey, is now open to all riders who ride waterfall with the C25 bunch, any Saturday slowies who do not ride waterfall or under 18 riders.

**Kms Classification**(most kilometres ridden)

This category is simple; every time you get on the bicycle you must record the amount of kilometres you ride, for every day in July (1st to 31st). So for example you may ride Saturday slowies Saturday morning (40kms), to waterfall on Sunday morning (80kms), commute to work Monday (10kms) and ride at the Velodrome Monday Night (30kms). Then you simply add up the total of these rides; 160kms and this is your progressive total. Any form of cycling counts and estimations are good enough if you do not own a cycle computer. Any kms accumulated on Rollers, trainers, spin class bikes or mountain bikes all count so long as you can gauge how many kms you have down in one ride.

As a general for how to classify your aims, here’s a guide; (for the whole month, based on my and Jessica’s estimation)

1. 0-200kms – You are Gregory Bauge; You may be able to win 3 world track sprint championships but will never win a grand tour.

2. 200-500kms-You are Tyler Hamilton, you have experienced and early tour tragedy such as a broken collarbone (or change of job) and have to battle on.

3. 500-750kms- You are Oscar Freire you don’t seem to do much training but still achieve amazing results

4. 750-1200kms- You are Allesandro Pettachi, this is the first hill top finish of the tour and you would rather get off now than continue

5. 1200-1550kms-You are Cam Myer, a young strong cyclist with much ability and ambition but not the endurance to continue

6. 1550-1869kms- You are Johan Van Summeren you are a super domestique who does all the kms and will someday get a great victory.

7. 1860-2170kms- You are Matt Loyd you have made it to the real mountains and have the power to blow your competition away. Though with this much dedication you may soon have no job.

8. 2170-2480kms- You are Fabian Cancellara you have conquered the mountains and still have the strength to win the individual time trial

9. 2480-2790kms- You are Jens Voight and absolute battler and deserve the greatest accolades for making it this far!

10. 2790-3100kms- You are Cadel Evans, you have battled for one whole month and have been ahead of the competition but can’t quite find that winning edge.

11. 3100-3480kms- You are Alberto Contador you probably have some kind of doping investigation hanging over your head to have done this many kms in a month. You have completed the ful Tour de France kms!!!

**Points classifications**:

The way these classifications work is that you can earn a set amount of points for achieving a particular activity in the month of July. Each activity can be performed as many times as you wish and the same amount of points are earned each time, so long as you complete each activity each time you do it. So for example in the sprint classification on a Monday night at the track you may win the Monday night madison (15 points), win a lead out (6 points) and do 2 starts (2 points). This will give you a cumulative total of 23 points for this category. Points can only be scored on the days of July and the winner of each category will be the person with highest total. Here is the available points for the Sprint and Mountain Classifications:
