Delirium takes place within the Parkwater sub-division on relatively quiet roads, however the roads are not closed for the event and riders are obliged to obey all normal traffic rules.

Strategy

Delirium is unique, in the sense that unlike a 24 Hour TT or MTB event, the strategies of normal road racing will apply. We anticipate alliances forming as riders seek to find a group that they can draft with. This event requires tactics like no other, and to do well you will need to constantly make good decisions and try to minimise bad ones.

If you have not ridden much in a group, we strongly recommend that you get some practice and learn about bunch riding prior to the event. Contact the South West Cycle Club or your local club to source information about bunch riding and details of training rides.

Nutrition and Hydration

Food and drinks will be available to purchase at various points and times during the event, with vendors aware of competitors requirement for carbohydrates. Competitors are welcome to bring there own supplies to suit their specific requirements.

Lung Institute of Western Australia

LIWA is the official charitable partner of Delirium and 24 Hours in Cowaramup. Lung Disease is one of the most significant health problems facing Australians and early detection can be invaluable in saving lives. LIWA in conjunction with the Cowaramup Lions Club will be conducting free lung screenings for the public during the event, for competitors this will provide an ideal opportunity to be tested and in the process potentially identify issues affecting your cycling performance. Riders are encouraged to raise money via the event to help fund research projects to be conducted by LIWA.
