We have made the advanced decision to cancel the club time trial on the M12 (Stamfordham) course on Thursday 11th August.
This is due to ‘surface dressing’ resurfacing works on the course and the new loose road surface being deemed a hazard to entrants.
We will keep an eye on the road conditions for the final few events, and hopefully another week will allow for the road surface to be compacted and relevant finish to the works by the local authority to take place. Surface dressing brings the hazard of loose chippings/gravel, accumulations of loose stones and patches of tar to become hazardous to cyclists, as well as flying chips from cars passing above the recommended speed limit.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to anyone but as a club we have to put the safety of everyone first. The decision has been made by the club committee as well as taking in feedback from local cycling organisations.
