"The Brickworks" in Pott Shrigley is a climb on the outskirts of Macclesfield, popular with our friends at the Manchester Wheelers Cycling Club, who use it as their gateway into the Peak District. Their late-summer hillclimb events up there are the stuff of legend, so it's about time we stepped in with a secondary event in the Spring.

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. Do not arrive at this point by car - please park elsewhere and ride over. Some courses have absolutely zero space for any vehicles and it is important to keep the area clear.
No need to sign or bring anything.
New risks can emerge last minute - follow any additional safety information.
Step 3 - Warming Up
Please stay off the course during the event, unless it's your turn.
The roads leading to Poynton/Adlington and Bollington are perfect for warming up.
Approach the start close to your time, while trying to aid traffic flow by staying on the pavement or close to the edge of the lane.
Step 4 - Finish
The finish line currently has a pothole one third of the way into the lane (from the left) and some gravel across the road. We have tried to clean this up as much as possible, but please be aware of it and use the center or right-hand side of the road for this section if it is safe to do so. Unfortunately, passing cars and walkers disrupt a gravel footpath (to the left) almost constantly, which means our efforts to clean this up have been reversed many times.
At the finish, please be careful about turning round as there is a blind summit.
When descending, please look to aid traffic flow for other competitors by staying out of their way and strategically allowing other traffic to pass you if necessary.
Step 5
Return your number, by leaving it in a box/container where you originally received it or at the top, while staying off the road and out of the way of riders finishing. Please don't gather in groups in such a way that could potentially cause traffic congestion.
Step 6
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.
