We have a sweep cyclist who follows around at the rear, removes route signs, and assists any event participants they come across. They are not a professional bike mechanic but someone who is an experienced rider and can help fix common minor faults such as a flat tire. They can also phone the Bicycle Tasmania organisers at the start/finish at Kangaroo Bay or at the food stop at the base of Grasstree Hill, and we can send out a vehicle if necessary to collect a cyclist (we have had to do this occasionally in the past). We also make this Bicycle Tasmania mobile phone number available to all participants so they can contact us if required. There will not be an ambulance on site. To cope with minor incidents we do have a comprehensive first aid kit at both the start/finish at Kangaroo Bay and at the food stop at the base of Grasstree Hill.
