Notoriously difficult to pace, Meg Lane is a rollercoaster of sharp steep bends, which go past the famous Hanging Gate pub before ramping up even steeper to the same point as the Nabbs Road course; arguably the best point to see the view across Cheshire plain, if your vision isn't too blurred by that point.

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, as it is for customers only - some parking on the road before the start is possible, Trentabank car park (Forest - SK11 0NS) is a 10 minute ride away or there are 100+ free spaces at Waterside SK11 7HG, which is a 10 minute ride away.
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 behind the start line is perfect.
Approach the start close to your time and wait to be called. There is a slighly blind bend, so consider waiting on the other side of the road.
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, but this is optional.
Step 4 - During the Race
NOTE: The road surfaces have deteriorated considerably in the past few months, especially before the pub and after the left turn. Large potholes are present.
DO NOT cross the white lines to cut the corner at the first right-hand hairpin, even if no oncoming traffic can be heard. It is a blind 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.
