7pm start this week on the Marston Magna 10 course.
HQ is still RNAS Yeovilton, so there is about a 4 mile ride, warm up, to get to the start. From the HQ turn left, then right on the crossroads, and head to Queen Camel. At the mini roundabout in QC turn right and follow the road to Marston Magna. On the northern edge of MM there is a lay-by where you can wait for you turn to start. The start is opposite the exit of the lay-by on the other side of the road. From the start head north and retrace your route to the HQ. Carry on to Ilchester where you turn on the first roundabout. Retrace your route back to Queen Camel. The finish is at the first 30mph sign on the edge of the village. Proceed to the Medical Centre where you can turn and then return to the HQ.
Please note if you come across a horse on the course travelling in the same direction as you please can you call out a warning of "bike" before you pass.
Secondly if there are a large number of entrants there is an overlap of riders that have finished returning to the HQ and using the same road as riders that have only just started. If you are amongst the early starters, and there are more than 25 entrants, please can you be aware that racing riders need to pass you as quickly and safely as possible. So please stay in single file and as close to the kerb as possible.
If the finish time keeper is in position please can you make it obvious that you are riding to the start when you pass him, by sitting up or slowing, or if you are finishing call out your number.
You must have a working rear light, switched on, when competing
Thanks. Have a safe ride.
