INSTRUCTIONS FOR MID WEEK LEAGUE RACE SERIES 2017
Preston Primary School, Back Lane, Preston, Hitchin, Herts, SG4 7UJ (Race HQ, not for parking)
The race WILL start at 7:45pm Sharp!
Car Share Where Possible. Princess Helena College have kindly offered to let us park in their grounds for some parking. The correct entrance for this will be off School Lane, almost opposite where the Start line will be. You will see a nice big sign that says the school name on it so you will know where to go. You can also park in and around the village but please be aware of how you park so that traffic has access at all times. There is NO PARKING on Back Lane as this is the finish straight, and it is only a car wide and all residents will be here anyway. Please arrive in good time to find a spot.
The route is undulating with a few inclines to deal with but nothing too scary 🙂
It is all Tarmac as it is on country lanes. All the usual safety measures will be out in force such as marshals’ at all key junctions, safety signs will be up everywhere too and we will have cyclists out in force where possible.
ALL OF THE ROUTES ARE POPULAR WITH DOG WALKERS, CYCLISTS AND HORSES, SO PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ALTHOUGH IT IS A RACE, WE STILL NEED TO PUT SAFETY FIRST, SO PLEASE RESPECT THE LOCALS AND DO YOUR BEST TO AVOID THEM! WE WILL HAVE MARSHALS AT KEY POINTS, SUCH AS ROAD JUNCTIONS. PLEASE DO NOT LITTER AS THEY CAUSE A HAZARD TO OTHERS. AT THE TIME OF EVENING THAT THE RACE WILL BE ON, WE DO NOT EXPECT MUCH TRAFFIC.
POST RACE FOOD & DRINKS:
Back at the School main hall (Race HQ) we will be holding food and drinks. These will be outside weather permitting also.
There will also be tea, coffee and water available.
Please leave the area as you found it so that we can protect the environment. The less the disruption we cause the more likely we can hold this race in the future.
