  4. Hi Simon,
    Go to your appropriate desk for registration for the 100 and tell the Sign in Ladies. They will take your details and pass it on to the timing guy so that your entry can be adjusted and your time will reflect the new distance.

  5. Hi – in light of the prolonged and heavy rain forecasted between now and tomorrow afternoon will road conditions/ standing water become a consideration for cancelling/ postponing the event.

  6. Hi Paul, we would ask that all entrants take into account the road conditions and ride accordingly. See the Riders Manual for the Safety Precautions.
    ………………..One thing that we cannot guarantee in the Northumberland is the weather. Please do keep up to date with the local weather news, and dress appropriately. All routes are varied in terrain and riders will become uncomfortable if they do not bring enough of the right gear. By this we mean layers; arm/leg warmers, comfortable gloves and a good water proof.

    SHORT TERM CANCELLATION PROCEDURE

    The Wooler Wheel Classic will only be cancelled if extreme weather or a catastrophe either render our routes unusable or present a significant threat to the health and safety of the riders.
