- Info for Riders:
- Run on the Longwood circuit near the Milbury's.
The race HQ is located at Owslebury Parish Hall, Main Road, Owslebury, SO21 1JQ. The race roll out from the
HQ will be neutralised along Longwood Road toward the crossroad junction with Belmore Lane. At the junction turn right onto Belmore Lane where, once safe, the race will be de-neutralised. Immediately after the crest of the first hill the road drops away to the left followed by a sharp right hand bend where extreme care is needed. After a series of rolling hills the race turns left into Salt Lane to climb up to The Milburys Pub crossroads. Just before cresting the Salt Lane climb riders will cross the finish line for the first time (there will be a further 7 laps). At the crossroads the race turns left for a fast decent followed by a sharp climb to the Longwood Road junction, at the junction the race turns left and descends to the junction with Belmore Lane where the race will turn left to complete the circuit.

This is the inaugaral road race hosted by the University Cycling Club in memory of James Atherton. James was both a friend of many club members and was studying for his doctorate at the University when he was tragically killed whilst out training in January 2013. He was an inspiration to many and we hope through this race his name can be remembered.
