    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.
    • Insect repellent.
    • Sun tan lotion.
    • Flat pedals (if you want to use them for the Classic Trials).

    Hi Ben we spoke in the week (mark) where do you want the marshals to meet up

    Premier Icon Ben_Haworth

    At the Sign-On / SIngletrack marquee (which will be at point “M2” on the XC course map above). You can’t miss it 🙂

    I thought the Marshalls briefing for Sunday was 10am ?

    Premier Icon Ben_Haworth

    It’s 9.30am now sorry.
    If you can’t make it then just come to the Sign-On / Singletrack tent at 10am and we’ll do it one-on-one 🙂

    Premier Icon lowey

    Nah its ok… We’ll be there.
