2. Road closures and parking – how it will work

During the event, the safety of the riders, their support teams, residents and spectators will, of course, be of paramount importance. As a result, rolling road blocks will be in place during the race and certain sections of the route will need to be free of both driven and parked vehicles. At these locations, yellow “no waiting at any time” cones – similar to those used during the Saddleworth Band Contest – will be deployed the night before the event. Vehicles that are still parked on the route prior to the race may be removed on instruction by the police and the owner will be liable for any recovery costs.
