Entry fee £4, all entries on the day, no advance entry needed.
Unfortunately due to BC's insurance fees rising, we have had to increase the entry fee in order to cover expenditure.
Car parking available
Dudley Kingswinford Rugby club have kindly given us permission to use some of their facilities on the day. Signing on will be in the clubhouse and the toilets will be available. Car parking will also be available. However, the changing facilities will be out of bounds for cyclists.
The bar should be open at 12pm where drinks and snacks may be purchased.
Riders under the age of 18 must wear a hard-shell helmet and provide a signed British Cycling parental consent form.
*Note - there has to be a route change at the start of the ride in order to avoid a closed road and road works further on. Therefore the rides will start from the rugby club, at the first set of lights, turn left along Mile Flat, follow the road round to pass the Navigation pub then right to climb Camp Hill. Keep going to the end of the road, then right onto Highgate Road, keeping right on this road to Halfpenny Green where you cross straight over - twice, towards the Fabric Barn where you rejoin the original route on the B4176.*
A refreshment stop can be taken in Bewdley to the left of the bridge.
It is advisable for every rider to carry a spare inner tube, basic tools, a pump, id and mobile 'phone and to wear adequate clothing for the conditions on the day.
