Marshals are there to help they are not allowed to stop the traffic you are responsable for your own actions at junctions throughout the ride.
We are using some cycle routes in order to avoid town centres, Airports and busy dual carriage ways.
The first one is the Manchester Airport Orbital cyle route. Parts of the route are not tarmaced although the surface is hard and compounded, extra caution is needed especially in the last 1/4 of a mile where it is quite narrow and winding.
The upside that you get a great view of the Airport and Runway. It's a close as you can get a a jet plane without having a ticket.
There's not so much a headwind along this stretch as a back draft from the planes taking off.
The second section is near Moulton as you near the Vale Royal Park Caravan site there is a section of the Cheshire Cycleways Route that is not tarmaced. Again the surface is hard and compounded but extra caution is needed. It is only about a 1/4 of a mile and all down hill.
One more point to mention is that after Lach Denis and as you cross the junction with the A530 the road ahead says closed. It is only closed to cars. There is a temporay bridge which can be used by pedestrians and cyclists.
CUT OFF POINT
There is a cut off point at the first feeding station of 11.30 any riders reaching this point after 11.30 will be sent on the 100km route.
It looks like it will be a fine sunny day please do not forget sun cream and make sure you keep hydrated.
We have two feeding staions one at Foxtwist Green and the 2nd at Church Minshall. The stops have been located to assist the 100 mile riders, the 100km riders will probably find them too close together you can stop at one or both of them.
