Headquarters, Car Parking and Race Numbers
Event HQ is Arkendale Community Hall. This will be open from 12.30 am. Parking is available in the field on the opposite side of the road to the Community Hall. The car park next to the hall is a private car park for use of the Blue Bell Pub. The results board and refreshments will be in the hall. Signing-on and numbers is at the HQ from approximately 12.30 am. Please return numbers to the HQ for a free drink of tea or coffee.
On leaving Arkendale Community Hall turn left and follow Marton Lane until you reach the T Junction with A168. Turn right and follow the A168 for approximately 2.6 miles to the start. This journey takes 15 minutes at a comfortable pace.
Please do not warm-up on the section of the A168 on which the event is held at any time after the start. There is a good stretch of the A168 north of the start which can be used for this purpose. Please note that the marshals are only to indicate your direction and cannot control traffic in your favour. At each junction it is your responsibility to ensure that it is safe to proceed. Keep your head up and keep to the left of the carriageway. Please wear your race number in a central position below the waist so that it is clearly visible to other road users when you are riding.
In the interests of your own safety, Cycling Time Trials and the event promoters strongly advise all riders to wear a hard shell helmet that meets an internationally accepted safety standard. In accordance with Regulation 15 ALL JUNIOR competitors must wear Protective Hard Shell Helmets. It is recommended that a working rear light, either flashing or constant, is fitted to the machine in a position visible to following road users and is active whilst the machine is in use.
