We’ve had a few queries about whether the event is still on – yes it is. The course may well feature some residual snow and almost certainly ice with the current forecast, but we will deal with this to make a safe course. It’s also likely to be muddy too. All the fun of winter racing in one go.
Cycling Weekly have published the venue as an old venue that was originally in the BC handbook – the event takes place at Edgeside Park, Waterfoot, about 2 miles from Rawtenstall. See here.
There’s still quite a bit of snow and ice that may make local access to the venue at Edgeside Park slow going – but please use the allotted parking marked off Wales Road – please do not park on the road side.
