As has been the case in recent years, Cannock Chase is one again the venue for Round 5 of the British Cycling National Cross Country series. The event is taking place this weekend on the 6th and 7th of August, at Tackeroo Campsite.
The race route will use part of Follow the Dog, and as such, Son of Chainslapper down to Hugh’s Bridge will be closed to the public from Thursday 4th to Tuesday 9th of August. For your safety as well as the safety of the race organisers and entrants, please do not attempt to ride these sections.
A signposted diversion will be put in place taking you down the trail that runs parallel to Penkridge Bank Road.
Birches Valley Forest Centre and The Monkey Trail will not be affected by the race and are both fully open as usual.
