We have a couple of riding stables nearby, so if we meet any horses and riders, be very courteous. We will have two NEG riders on the event, so if they give any safety instructions, obey them!!

Winter and the floods have not been kind to the circuit. Potholes (craters!!!) have appeared on parts of the circuit, so light wheelsets are not recommended. I am trying to get the council to fill the potholes in, but I’m not expecting them to be high on the list of urgent repairs. I will inform riders of the location of the pots during the rider briefing.

No Litter please, we have had a couple of complaints about gel wrappers/bags thrown on the circuit in the past
