Fachwen Hill Climb, 20.09.150

On Sunday, 20th September Energy Cycling Club will be holding the second of its two 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: Once again, 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 once again 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 once again be at the access gate 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, however it does make this event a little different to the usual hill climb format that you are use to. Despite this,  hopefully we’ll see you all again at The Caban next Sunday……..
