Care at road junctions:

Be aware that there is a double bend shortly after turning into Twemlow Lane at Cranage.
Riders need to anticipate this and be prepared to negotiate it in a safe manner.
In wet weather the metal covers and edges become a skid risk. Please take care.

Riders must be able to brake and stop at the island if traffic conditions require this. Riders MUST NOT approach and encircle the island using tri-bars.
