Please note: Car Parking is limited for this event. We will have 120 spaces available at £5.00 each. All spaces must be booked online. This is due to the football field being damaged by cars in pervious years. If the weather has been dry leading up to and on the day of the event we will be allowed to use the field but this is not guaranteed. We encourage riders to ride in where possible.
