Round 1 - Sherwood Pines Forest Park  Promoted by Sherwood Pines Cycles  Elite Races UCI Class 1

The series opener for the fourth successive year, Sherwood Pines is always one of the best supported events on the calendar.  With the need to reduce the lap length to comply with current UCI requirements, the Forestry Commission’s Chris Bray has been busy during the autumn months re-establishing some old trails which will offer some new technical challenges to this old favourite.

Parking: Please park in the area designated for the event.  Other parts of the Forest Park remain open to the public throughout the weekend.  The normal venue parking charge applies.

Camping: The campsite is available from 3 pm on Friday 23rd March. Camping is free, and while the parking charge will apply, one payment will cover the whole weekend.  The camping area must be vacated by 6 pm on the Sunday evening.
