Cranage Village Hall, CW4 8EQ
on A50 ¾ miles north of Holmes Chapel – open from 11:00
Numbers will be available at the HQ. You must sign on when collecting your number.
The field of 67 riders has been spread over 100 minutes so as to minimise overtaking and lapping.
Riders are requested not to use the A50 for warm–up as this would disturb the marshals / checkers. We recommend to use Middlewich Road, from the cross-roads just beyond the Start in Byley Lane, then riding over the M6 bridge towards the A50 and return.
Please: only the Timekeeper’s Car at the Start and Finish.
Car-Supported riders must complete registration form and place sticker on windscreen.
Self-Supporting riders can place their bottles (clearly marked with race number) in tray at HQ, which will be transported to Twemlow Lane, Hermitage X-rds for self-serving at 41.5, 58.5, 75.5 and 92.5m.
Care at road junctions: Riders must exercise caution at all junctions. Any competitor whose riding line causes her/him to cross the white line when approaching or leaving a junction will be liable to disqualification from the event and may be reported to the District Committee for further disciplinary action.
A competitor who swings out to the right before executing a left turn should ensure that the road behind is clear of traffic before doing so. The practice is not encouraged by the District Committee and competitors who ride in this manner are warned that in many circumstances this maneuver will be regarded as a contravention of regulation 47(i), (iii), (v).
Riders must not perform U turns in the vicinity of the start or finish of the event. Riders observed performing U turns will be reported to the District Committee who will consider disciplinary proceedings.
LOCAL REGULATION COVERING USE OF TRI-BARS ON CHELFORD ISLAND
Riders must negotiate Chelford Island in a safe and sensible manner in accordance with CTT Regulation 20 and the rules of the road. 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. Remember – traffic on the island has priority over traffic (including riders) entering it. Any rider seen to be in breach of this regulation will be disqualified from the event and may be reported for further disciplinary action.

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.
