Course Description: Porlock Toll Road Hill Climb Course UH10 Start: Approximately 150 meters up the Toll Road from where it leaves the A39 Porlock Hill main road, by the two garages on the left hand side and opposite the Village Hall Car Park entrance on the right hand side. Proceed up the Toll Road for 4.2 miles to the finish which is approximately 200 meters short of the top of the road where it rejoins the main A39 Porlock to Lynmouth road. The finish is located by a defined dip in the grass bank on the left and opposite a similar gap in the beach hedge with a dip on the right. Please note that there is a cattle grid after approximately 2.25 miles which can be slippery when wet. Important Course Information: The Toll Road will be closed to the general public from 09.30 - 15.00 hours, from just before the start line to the finish. However, there are three farms on the course which may require urgent access to the Toll Road during the event. Please be aware that there may be farm vehicles somewhere on the course and therefore you must ride in accordance with the Highway Code. Residents who live on the course, mainly at the bottom of the hill, will have vehicular access at all times to enter and exit their homes down to Porlock Village. When descending ride slowly and keep to the left hand side. Keep to the left of cones and obey marshals to avoid other competitors. Competitor Notes: 1. Car Parking will be at the Porlock Recreation Ground, Parson Street, Porlock, TA24 8QJ (Ladies in the Hill Climb please see note 4), approximately 0.5 mile up Parson Street, road next to the church in the centre of the village, see attached map. Please allow 5 minutes to ride from the recreation ground to the start. Please park in rows as directed or following existing parking pattern. 2. Toilet facilities can be found in the Village Hall. 3. Changing facilities for male competitors are located in the recreation ground building. 4. Parking at the Village Hall is strictly limited to officials and lady competitors only. 5. Signing on and race numbers will be available at the Village Hall from 9am. No signature no ride. 6. The Toll Road will be closed to all traffic from 9.30am on the day of the race. You are welcome to ride the course prior to this but please be aware that there is a £1 Toll fee for bicycles. 7. All riders other than those racing must be off the Toll Road by 9.45am at the latest. 8. A box will be located at the village hall for clothing that will be transferred to the finish area at regular intervals. Please bag any items you wish to be transferred to the finish and clearly label the bag with your name. Items must be in the box 30mins prior to your start time.

Hill Climb PORLOCK minehead CYCLING CLUB
Minehead Cycling Club regret to announce that the 2019 Porlock Hill Climb has been cancelled. We appreciate that participants, supporters and spectators alike will be disappointed, however the Club has reluctantly taken this decision as our resources are stretched at the moment and we are unable to give the event the attention it deserves. We would like to take this time to review and refresh the event for 2020, and with this in mind we are open to any and all offers of support to help plan, promote, deliver and participate in a re-launched Porlock Hill Climb 2020. If you have the passion and drive to help us take this forward please contact the Club Secretary via e mail at secretary@minehead.cc in the first instance."
