A fun and safe event on the exciting, Southward Museum Circuit.
The course goes anti-clockwise round the museum. And the road dips down and then up again when around the back - so it's a fantastic course - very safe and a huge amount of fun.
One of the great things about this course is that it's fantastic for watching the events unfold - as the riders come by every few minutes.
I'm sure most will ride there - but for those driving - parking is available inside the circuit. We will have a marshal by the gate to let you know when you can cross the circuit safely.
The organisation is as follows:
The event is graded - so people of similar ability starting together and racing each other to the finish. Only 1 event going on on the circuit at a time. There will be early events at 5:30pm for juniors followed by 4 events for adults.
For the seniors - as a guide... Event 1 is for new riders, beginners and young adults. Event 2 will be for people who are generally in C grade in our regular events. Event 3 for B grade. And Event 4 will be for those who are A grade normally.
Junior Events-start at 5:30pm - There will be a couple of junior events in the half hour before the adults begin. The course will be dependent on the numbers and ages of the kids. If we get a number of kids under 8 we will run a separate event that just takes in the front of the museum. Older kids will have an event on the full circuit.
Senior Event 1 - Beginners grade- starts at 6pm and will go for 15minutes + 2 laps.
Senior Event 2 - C grade- starts at 6:20pm and will go for 20minutes + 2 laps.
Senior Event 3 - B grade - starts at 7:00pm and will go for - 25 mins + 2 laps.
Senior Event 4 - A grade - starts at 7:30pm and will go for - 25 mins + 2 laps.
So - it'll pay to be well warmed up before you start. (there is plenty of room within the circuit to warm up).
Registration will open at 5pm. Timing will be done manually and the first 3 across the line will be judged.
