Red Rose ‘cross, Cockerham – preview

The venue has been developed with three fishing lakes and the course will use the access tracks around the lakes which will be linked with more technical elements, single track sections will be kept to a minimum to enable overtaking opportunities for virtually the whole course. As the venue is ecologically sensitive please do not bring petrol washers into the pit areas. Also please do keep dogs on leads and children supervised around the areas of open water. Hot food and drinks will available on the day to keep the December chills at bay!

Directions

From Cockerham village centre follow the A588 north to Glasson Dock / Lancaster. Shortly after leaving the village centre there is a garage on the left, and the entrance to the venue is the next turning on the left. There is a concrete track with wooden fencing which leads to the main car parking area. Overflow parking will be available which can be reached by going past the main entrance north and taking the next left on Hillam Lane and going down to the first farm on the left hand side. Parking stewards will be in attendance on the day. Signing on will be at race HQ which will be situated in the middle of the course.

    When are NWCCA going to start to recognise the efforts of female participants? With BC publicly encouraging women to take up cycling, it’s little wonder that girls give up. Boys get recognised for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places but it seems that unless you are the first girl in the majority of events, your efforts will go unrecognised. Come on NWCCA get it sorted!

    Ian, as an organiser, I can tell you that there are rules about how many prizes are warranted and the league has taken the decision to give out twice the number of prizes for female riders than males, pro rata. Look me up at an event – vet #28, Will’s Wheels and I’ll be happy to discuss any suggestions you have to improve things

      Alan thanks for response, will catch up with you but for our lass it’s not the prize money it’s the recognition of effort that matters to her.
