It is the same circuit as last year with the same finish line being used which is 800m before the village

 

We are also asking for the cycling public’s help in keeping the event safe. You can help by not parking on the road near either finish line on the day and also respect the underage races by not warming up on their circuit – there is plenty of room to warm up elsewhere.

 

So finally we are looking forward to seeing you for what we hope will be another great day of cycling in Currow – your continued support of the event is very much appreciated
