Fach Wen Hill Climb, 21.09.140

On Sunday, 21st September Energy Cycles Club will be holding the third in the series of local hill climbs, on the Fachwen Hill Climb course.

The signing on will be at The Caban in Brynrefail from 8.30 am, and the event will start from the large lay by at Pen Llyn on the Fachwen road at 10.00 am.

Riders will follow the road up thro’ Fachwen towards Dinorwig and carry on up to finish at the dam of Llyn Marchlyn. Distance 4.9 miles, approx. 1732 feet of assent.

Please note: Due to the heightened security level issued by the UK Govenment, the site owners EDF/First Hydro have restricted the use of their land and sites by clubs and organisations. We have been refused the use of the road up to the surge pond, and the keys to the access gate. However we have been given permission to use the section of road straight up to Llyn Marchlyn Reservoir. Marshals will placed at all road junctions to direct competitors. Marshals will also be at the access gates to assist riders onto the private road, more details of which will be given on Sunday.

I appreciate that this is perhaps not the ideal situation, but hopefully I’ll see you at The Caban next Sunday……..
