Cranage Village Hall CW4 8EQ
[On the western side of the A50 in Cranage, about 500m south of the A50/Twemlow Lane junction]
DIRECTIONS TO START
For those riders who know the area the best way is to go through Goostrey village because it does not involve riding on the course.
For those riders who do not know the area the simplest route is to turn left out of the HQ and then first right into Twemlow Lane. Then follow the course (beware of other riders) to the junction of the A535 and Bomish Lane. Turn left into Bomish Lane where the start is approx 500m up the road.
A copy of the J2/9 course risk assessment will be available to read at the Event HQ.
Please also 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.
1/ Please allow 25 minutes to ride from the HQ to the start
2/ No parking at the start or finish, and vehicles must not be parked, however briefly, in any part of the access area to Mount Pleasant Nursing Home,
opposite the finish.
3/ Numbers, signing on sheet, and results board will be at the HQ. Arm numbers are to be worn on the right. Please hand in your numbers afterwards.
4/ Riders must not stop at the finish but continue (along the A50) on to the HQ.
5/ After finishing beware of other riders who may still be racing on the A50.
The event will be held under CTT regulations and observers may be present. Riders must not make U turns within sight of the start and finish.
