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 commissaries and PA announcer.
There will be queues for each race category and a separate one for assigning timing chips.
YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PRACTICE THE COURSE 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.
The finish area is right beside the visitor centre and will be serving the usual tasty grub.
Prizes for the seniors, vets, ladies, juniors and youths will be trophies and medals from TheSprocketMan.com.
There will also be bike related goodies for the kids and other prizes donated by GMBC's sponsor Alpine Bikes as well as Glasgow City Council and Scottoiler.
There is car parking at the visitor centre, which will probably fill up quickly on race day. Please use the Khyber and Mugdock East car parks which are both within a few minutes ride of the course.
Please avoid parking along the main access road to the visitor centre as this causes problem for emergency vehicles, etc.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
