Having done Pym Chair the week before, you will notice an easier road leading up to it. Side End Lane is much longer and climbs to the same spot from Kettleshulme, going via the very dramatic Windgather Rocks halfway up. The gradient doesn't stay constant and, as the name suggests, gusts of wind can make it even more unpredictable.

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's a huge car park here for around 40 cars.
No need to sign or bring anything.
New risks can emerge last minute - follow any additional safety information.
Step 3 - Warming Up
Please do not warm up on the course during the event.
Please take the descent slowly and give climbers the priority at narrow points.
Approach the start close to your time, but please only line up with a couple of minutes to go, due to lack of space.
Please wait on the main road if you're early and roll up to the start area once there is enough space.
Step 4 - Racing
Go up the hill as fast as possible and watch out for potholes at the crossroad section. We have swept up gravel, especially at the cottage on the blind bend, but it may have returned somewhat.
Step 4 - Finish
At the finish, please do not stop in the middle of the road or attempt to do a u-turn at the finish line. Please stop and turn around carefully.
Step 5
Return your number, by leaving it where you originally received it.
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.
