For those using Sat Nav, the post code BH20 7PA will probably take you to the Silent Woman Public House but do not worry as you will only be 100 yds away from the course. Look out for the Marshals who will direct you to parking area’s. Those coming from the North and West will come in through Blandford and Bere Regis then just follow signs to Wareham. Those coming in from the East need to come in Via Sandford and Wareham then follow signs to Bere Regis. We are between Wareham & Bere Regis.
Held at Wareham Forest by kind permission of Charborough Estates and The Forestry Commission this a racers course, fast, wide, includes hard packed cinder/gravel, mud, sand and pine trails.
The course, shortened from last year, is about 2700 meters long and fast in the majority places. It has a mixture of surfaces, wide, hard packed fire tracks, downhill mud section, pine trails and grass. It’s a great course, offers a little difference to the normal grass football pitch type course, it is challenging and should be fun. For a sneak preview of the type of terrain the course is set on then go to Google Maps, type in the Post Code, go to Satellite View and it is about 300 meters south west of Cold Harbour. There will be shortened versions for Under 12’s and Youth.
Toilets and changing are provided, but no showers.
Please use this facility, the public are everywhere and the Forestry Officers take a very dim view of persons using their trees as a toilet. Unfortunately, there are no changing or shower facilities so we ask that competitors be as discreet as possible when changing in this very public area.
A mobile catering van will be present.
Run by professional Caterers, they are a very nice couple who are farmers from deepest Dorset and only sell products that have been produced on their farm. Should be very tasty and healthy and we hope you make use of this facility.
Cycle Experience of Wareham are attending this event and will be providing mechanical support free of charge. If you have a problem with your machine then pop along and see them and they will sort it for you. Replacement parts will be charged.
