Primera Purbeck Road Races #1 and #2 on 13 July and 14 September 2014
Dorset Cycling Development Group are promoting two events for 2014. The second event on the 14 September follows the same format:
8.5 laps of the Creech Circuit (43 miles/72km)
We used the course twice during 2013 on Day 1 of the Local Riders Local Races 2 day and on Day 2 of the Primera Purbeck 2 day. The course has a long climb that starts at the bottom of Grange Road and terminates on the finish line just before East Creech. It is a gentle climb that steepens in the last 400m before the finish line – you will probably need the little ring for the steeper section. It is downhill back to the HQ and then flat for a mile until you turn into Grange Road.
You can view a few photos of the course with the report from last year’s Primera Purbeck 2 day which was a 2/3/4 category event:
Turn left out of Furzebrook village hall proceed north on Furzebrook Road to junction with A351, where left. At first junction turn left into Grange Road. At first junction on the left, turn left into unclassified road that proceeds through finish line (lap board) before entering hamlet of East Creech. At T junction turn left onto Furzebrook Road and proceed north passing village hall to complete a lap. Lap distance 5.3m (8.5km).
