< Back to events
The forest/Wildboarclough area has no easy exits and this is probably the most difficult of them all, leading to Higher Sutton. It is an extremely short, narrow and twisty road that demands an absolute maximum effort to simply stay upright. The beginning offers you a few seconds to build up some speed, but a 29% gradient puts the brakes on immediately.

PROCEDURE

Step 1
As soon as entries close, we will strive to produce the start sheet, showing your start time. It will be available on this page (below) and sent to you via text message/email.
Step 2 - Arrival
Arrive at the meeting point (details above) and collect your race number. There is NO PARKING here, unless you have been specifically allocated a spot - please park on Ridge Hill/Meg Ln, on the road through Wildboarclough, at Macclesfield Forest, or in central Macclesfield and ride over. This course has absolutely zero space for any vehicles and it is important to keep the area clear and road free of vehicles during the event.
Please plan ahead if you intend to drive out.
No need to sign or bring anything.
New risks can emerge last minute - follow any additional safety information.
Step 3 - Warming Up
No warming up on the course at all while the event is in progress.
The road through Wildboarclough and the main A54 road are both great for warming up.
Approach the start close to your time and wait off the road and in the driveway for "Heron Crag" (see start line photo above).
Listen out for your number to be called and say your number to the start timekeeper as you approach, to make their job easier by preventing mistakes.
We can now legally hold you up at the start, or you can hold on to the fence in order to get clipped in.
Step 4 - During the Race
Most gravel and sand has been swept over to the other side of the road, although this may have moved, so please look out.
The first right-hand bend is particularly narrow and steep. Please listen out for oncoming vehicles and please take this slow if descending.
There is a deep pothole on the left, just after the first right-hand bend.
Step 5 - Finish
If you wish to descend to spectate, please take care if doing a U-turn and stay out of the way of riders coming up the hill.
Please don't gather in groups in such a way that could potentially cause traffic congestion.
Step 6
Return your number, by leaving it in a box/container where you originally received it or at the top if it is easier.
Step 7
Send any videos and photos to us. We'd love to see what you captured.

TRAVELLING

IMPORTANT

Parking is not guaranteed for our events and they were originally devised with a short 5-30 minute ride out from Macclesfield in mind.
We are delighted that non-local riders from further out wish to travel long journeys to join us, but:
• If you are able to ride out without driving, please do so.
• Some events have zero or extremely limited space for vehicles. Please bear this in mind and see the map below for help.
• If you must drive, please consider car sharing with another driver to reduce congestion.

Parking Spaces
We are continually looking for suitable parking spaces close to our events and have added most of these to a map [Here]
Click on each location to see more information.
We cannot guarantee that these will be available on the day, so please leave early if you're planning to park somewhere remote.

Park & Ride Recommendation
Are you driving out? If you can, please use our (80) FREE parking spaces in central Macclesfield and ride out from there.
These are at Waterside, SK11 7HG and have been secured specifically, with the help of various local businesses/offices.
[Map Here]

Local residents are doing their best to keep the courses clear for us, so please do the same and avoid parking near the course if possible. Several courses contain junctions with private roads/driveways and should not be used or blocked under any circumstances.
