Singletrack Classic Weekender – Course Maps & Timetable Of Events

by Ben Haworth 9

Cars, camping and catering FAQ:-

  • Lee Quarry can be hard to find for some. Google (or key in to your SatNav) the following:- Kingfisher Centre Futures Park, Bacup, OL13 0BB (click for maplink).
  • The quarry will be AA signposted from all motorways and main roads.
  • It is free to park.
  • There will be two secure car parks in operation. One for people staying for the duration of the weekend, the other for people who aren’t (spectators, non-campers, marshals etc).
  • Car parking – anything smaller than (or same size as) a Transit will be fine in the car park. Full-on Motorhomes are a no-no.
  • It is free to camp.
  • Food and (non-alcoholic) drink will be available to buy.
  • Drinking water will be available for free.

Stuff to bring with you:-

  • A print out of this page (or you can download a cuter “Info Pack” here).
  • A hammmer.
  • Spare tent pegs.
  • Decent camping mat or inflatable mattress.
  • Torch and/or headtorch.
  • A bike lock.
  • Money.
  • Beer.

  3. Q1: if we sign on on the Friday night what is the latest riders should arrive on the Saturday – midday ?

    Yep, ideally a little bit before because 12noon is the rider briefing.

    Q2: Can riders give their downhill seeding times at sign on on Friday ?

    Yep, before 9pm.

  4. And tyre swapping is not allowed between disciplines – correctio?

  5. Correct..

    At sign-on you will declare your bike model AND your tyres. You have until 10am on Saturday to change your mind but if you do you MUST report back to registration to tell us. If what we have on our list doesn’t match your setup during the events then you will be DQ’d.

  6. WHERE are my flatties???!!!

  7. sods law, as soon as I call singletrack rescue (have been looking all week)… I now find them straight away!

  8. Are BBQs OK in the campsite?
