Glasgow Mountain Bike Club have been in touch with info on next Sunday's cyclocross at Mugdock Country Park. It'd been on the calendar for as long as I can remember and is a perennial favourite.
Sign on details are as follows:
Sign-on will open from 9.00am on Sunday for all races (Kids and youths will get priority at this time as their race is the first)
Please get to sign-on in plenty of time. Sign-on will close promptly 20 minutes before each race start time. This is to enable full start sheets to be passed to the commissarie and PA announcer.
There will be queues for each race category and a separate one for assigning timing chips.
Unfortunately there is no pre-entry for this race so please give yourself plenty of time to sign-on!

NO PRACTICE UNLESS SIGNED-ON
Helmets must be worn when practicing on the course.
Please take care when warming up and practicing as this is a public facility with dogs and young children on the loose.
There is car parking at the visitor centre, which will probably fill up quickly. There is also the Khyber and Mugdock East car parks which are both within a few minutes ride of the course.
The visitor centre is right beside the start/finish area and will be serving the usual tasty grub.
