To access the start, it will be necessary to cross and ride a short section of the course. We ask all competitors heading to the start to be mindful of other competitors racing and neither impede nor assist them, whilst also being aware of other road users. We suggest that all riders heading to the start turn off at Crowhall Roundabout and ride through the industrial estate (Crowhall Road and Nelson Way – for those that ride the Barnesbury Club 10’s – this is the normal route you would use to access the start)
Riders: Take extra care where traffic enters or leaves the course by way of slip roads and in the negotiation of roundabouts.
No U-turns to be made in the vicinity of the timekeeper.
No dismounting in the finishing area.
You must look ahead and not ride with your head down.
In the interests of your safety, we recommend that all competitors wear a hard shell helmet and use a working rear light.
To assist the timekeepers at the finish line can you please ensure that your number is correctly placed and visible from the rear in line with CTT regulations noted below. If your number is too high, the Time Keepers will not be able to see it.
“The number shall be centrally positioned below the waist so as to be clearly visible from the rear when in his normal riding position. Position number as shown:”
Any additional safety information will be provided on the day at the sign on HQ.
