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.
This is the first event where parking may be a big issue. Unless you can park in Bollington/Macclesfield and ride out, Pym Chair car park might be the best option. It allows you to look at round 9 on the way back.
No need to sign or bring anything.
New risks can emerge last minute - follow any additional safety information.
Step 3 - Warming Up
While you can descend the course and spectate, please do not go UP the climb at all while the event is in progress.
The main road at the bottom is perfect for warming up, but can be tricky to turn round on if going down to Rainow. The next road along (Pike Road) is also good.
Approach the start close to your time and wait in the small area opposite with the gate, off the road (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.
The hill is steep immediately at the start, so please take extra care clipping in. We will have a solution in place to prop you up, but this is optional.
Step 4 - During the Race
The road surface is good up until where it begins to flatten off. Potholes start to appear and there is one that is difficult to spot at the little dip before the sprint to the finish. It covers most of the left lane, so staying central or to the right is ideal, if safe to do so.
The surface is much worse on the descending side. Please take it slowly.
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.
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.
