Travel News - Road

Six Hills Way remains closed north of Fairlands Valley Park. If you are arriving by car, please either part in the large car park off of Broadhall Way at Fairlands Valley Showground, or you can access Fairlands Valley Park from the south (via roundabout of Six Hills Way and Valley Way) and then use the large car park on the left as you enter the park. Please do not park in the small cafe car park as it needs to be used by visitors to the park throughout the day, we depend on their good will.

Weather News

The weather forecast for Sunday doesn't look as bad as previously expected and even seems to be improving fast so the ride will be going ahead as normal. It is down to the individual rider to decide as to whether they will start the event or not.

Emitremmus Entries Now Closed!

With just a few days to go until Emitremmus 2013 we have now closed the online entries. There are over 350 entries currently in our system in what is looking to be a great event this year and we can't wait to see everyone on Sunday.


For those who haven't yet entered for the Emitremmus but want to, we are sorry that online entries are now closed and that postal entries sent now may not be processed in time. If you would like to join the ride then you will need to turn up on the day and register with us. On the line entries will cost 10 for both the 101km and lite routes.

If you want to speed up the process on the day you can fill out an entry form in advance and bring it to us on the day along with the payment which will save you time having to fill out the form when you arrive.


For everyone who has entered, please make sure you have everything prepared for the ride you are taking part in. It's good to have a last check over your bike and make sure you have a spare inner tube or puncture repair kit in case of an accident. If you want to familiarise yourself with the route you can download a copy of the Desrever (101km) routesheet or the Lite (67km) routesheet from the links.

You can check our electronic "Is Your Name Here?" on site now to double check that your entry has been received and confirmed and also see your rider number and which start group you have been allocated to. If your name does not appear on the lists or you have any other general queries then please do contact us using the web form on our contact page.

All other information about the event can be found on the Emitremmus page.

Emitremmus 2013 is now only a week away so please take a look at the below update.

If you have not already entered, you are cutting it extremely fine. We cannot guarantee that there will be any brevet cards available. if there are any remaining, entries will be available on the day.

Please check to make sure that you are appearing on the Is your name here. If it is not you need to get in touch with us as soon as possible (use the Contact button in the top right corner of any page).

On the day, please be considerate to other road users as there will be many hundreds of people coming to Fairlands Valley Park, and not all of them will be cyclists. Also, please remember that the road on the left turn out of Fairlands Valley Park is closed at the moment, you will need to use the cycle track for the start of the ride.

If possible, please come by bike. If this is not an option, you can take a look at this handy travel guide on available train options and also tips for driving to the event.

Emitremmus Update

Here is an update on how Emitremmus 2013 is shaping up:

The first 200 or so entries were processed this evening. The postman will be busy now then.

---------------------

With just over 2 weeks to go until the 27th October we already have over 170 entries for both events. If you still want to enter either the Desrever (101km) or the Lite (67km) event then there is plenty of time, You can either print of an available from our Emitremmus page and send it through the post or enter online for the Desrever (101km) or Lite (67km).

All the information including entrants letters, route sheets and parking information can all be found on our Emitremmus page. All files are up to date so hopefully there will be no confusion with older information being used.

As local cyclists will be aware, there is currently some road works going on along Six Hills Way between Valley Way and Shephall Way and as a result the Fairlands Valley car park near Costello's can only be accessed from the Valley Way side of Six Hills Way. Luckily we have managed to come up with some alternatives on getting to the start which can be found here.

In previous years we have uploaded a "Is Your Name Here?" every few days to allow entrants to make sure that they have been fully registered for the events. This year we have created an automated system that shows all this information. Groups and Numbers haven't been assigned yet but will be closer to the date of the event so make sure to check back regularly for updates and let Jim know if you don't see yourself on the list.

Emitremmus 2013 - Is Your Name here?

That's everything for now, We look forward to seeing lots of happy new and familiar faces on the 27th.


Kind regards,

Emitremmus Ridemakers.
