Two Mills (Wirral) Early Season Challenge Ride
14 Apr 2019
This popular early season event challenges you to cycle the 50 mile course and to eat what is a generous buffet lunch in either 4 or 5 hours. It is not a race. If you would like a more sociable pace, there is also a shorter 50km route. Start/finish is Farndon Sports and Social club, Sibbersfield Lane, Farndon, Chester CH3 6NX.
We welcome cyclists of all ages and abilities. You do not have to be a member of Cycling UK although we encourage you to join our national organisation www.cyclinguk.org. Members enjoy a cheaper entry charge. The route is all on road but not closed ones! Do take the time to enjoy this tour of our wonderful Cheshire and Welsh border lanes.
The entry fee is £14.00 (or £13.00 for Cycling UK members). Under 18’s (members) ride FREE of charge when accompanied by a paying adult but parents or carers should still register them and sign the consent.
For that you get:
- drinks at start/finish
- buffet style lunch midway
- electronic timing
- plenty of free car parking at HQ
- route sheet in paper form or for GPS devices
- support vehicle for emergencies
- event is registered for Cycling UK Tourist Competition and the Challenge Ride series
The course follows a figure of 8, looping out to Kinnerton in one direction and Overton in the other. Entries cannot be refunded or transfered and must be received before 31st March after which the charge increases to £15 for everyone and only accepted if there is space. Our limit is 250 riders. Early entry is a must to guarantee your place. UPDATE: we have reached maximum numbers today (17.01.19). You can still sign-up on our waiting list in case places do become available later.
If you are riding the 50 mile course do tell us how fast you plan to complete and if you want to be grouped with team mates. You will be allocated a time slot to start from 9.45am to 10.45am. Faster 4 hour riders and those following the shorter 50km circuit will leave last.
Please note that when you register you will receive an email confirming your paid entry, but the route details and joining instructions will not be sent to you until approximately 7 days before the event. I will also ask you then about any special dietary needs.
