Hazards - There are some very high cliffs in Mine Woods. Courses have been planned to avoid them, however be careful at all times. Participants may also encounter mountain bikers, other members of the public, steep slopes and undergrowth. Courses also cross a number of minor roads.

Note - Car parks are often close to houses and are often used by others, so please park considerately and change discreetly.

Post event food - I have booked a table at Corrieri's, Causewayhead, for 8pm. Please let me know if you would like to eat there after the event, so I can give them an estimate of numbers.
