Hocus Pocus, unfaired low bike,  will be available to ride at this event and the following day. No adjustment. Fits some mid height riders. Easy to ride, though not a beginner's bike. Quite aero, but quite heavy.

Do you have to pay the "London car entry tax" to get a vehicle to Crystal Palace?
Ian, racing again No 6.

I would be up for that! Will be coming down for Friday night and probably staying in YHA Medway and ditto on Sunday night, ‘‘tis a long way up north. Will also have a tent with me if needed. So Saturday night at Crystal Palace, a memory from my youth would be wonderful.

Details for The Gravesend racing on the Saturday are:

we have the lower 2 circuits of the track (click to see pic) booked from 12-4pm

Sign-on starts ~11am

Race formats (split into Fast and Slow groups depending on numbers)
10min + 1 lap
20 min + 1 Lap
30 min + 1 Lap

The two race circuits can be used in a number of different combinations/directions, which can be decided on the day.

Can we please have some volunteers to help organise??

Also worth noting: If travelling to/from Gravesend via the Dartford/bridge/tunnel don't forget it operates by numberplate recognitions system. You can pay in advance or by midnight the day after you cross.

Is anyone getting more than a blank page with "Car Parking" written on it? I've tried three browsers...


I think I'm on timing duty by default for this. Which means someone else really ought to do the sign-on (I have the tablet, float and sign-on forms, as well as the timing equipment (minus the stopwatches, to prevent a repeat of York if I'm unable to make it)).

Blank page when I look, web site is forked!

Facefart page says this though:

Car Parking charges will apply at Cyclopark from Monday 4th February.

The charges will be as follows -

The first 30mins will be free of charge.

Up to 4hrs £1.00

All day £2.00

Please pay at the machine based in the Pavilion prior to leaving.

Their facebook posting for carpark charges is from 2013.

I emailed them  to let them know their carpark webpage isn't working and to confirm current prices which are:-

Under 30 minutes: FREE

Up to 3 hours: £1.20

Over 3 hours: £3.60


Cant seem to edit my own posts, so I'll leave this info here and also put in the 2019 round 10 forum topic.
