                    Action(s) to mitigate risk


                    Signage 200M before start (East-bound). Riders
                    MUST obey Highway Code when joining traffic
                    flow.
                    Waiting riders should remain within the bounds of
                    the layby. Parking is discouraged, only
                    Marhsalls/those bringing heavy equipment such as
                    signs should park in this layby

                    Light traffic expected, riders have right of way

                    Riders should dicourage late/unsafe overtaking
                    by adopting the 'primary position' through the
                    pinch-point
                    Riders have right of way
                    Light bus traffic expected. If one is present, pass
                    only with extreme care.
                    Light traffic expected, riders have right of way

                    Good visibility, riders have right of way.
                    Riders MUST obey all speed limits.

                    Offset junction, fairly high traffic flow. Risk of
                    drivers overtaking then cutting across the front
                    of riders. Riders should adopt the 'primary
                    position' to discourage late/unsafe overtaking.


                    Light traffic expected, riders have right of way

                    Adopt 'primary position'. Riders MUST obey all
                    speed limits.
                    Riders have right of way
                    Adopt 'primary position'. Pass buses only with
                    extreme care.

Riders mUST obey all speed limits, but are likely to
be braking for roundabout, below
Riders are making a complete 180 degree turn,
a legal but unusual maneuver Risk is
heightened by nature of roundabout (vegetation
in the centre) but reduced by the low speeds of
riders at this point. Riders have right of way but
should ride with due caution and give clear
signals. WHERE POSSIBLE a volunteer
marshall will be present at the roundabout but
the event can be conducted without this
measure.

                                                      Sheet1
Riders need to ride up to the timekeeper, either
at the start (1) or layby (2) to confirm their race
number. Care should be taken in making right
turn not to inerfere or place at risk riders or
other road users. Have a breather!
