This Wednesday: Otley Town Centre Races

All Otley Cycle races take place on a closed circuit. The circuit is 2.25 km long. The finishing straight is flat and the finish line is approximately 190m from the last corner. After the finish line the course jinks left and then right up Burras Lane.

Winner last year, Matt Walls

The first part is steep but momentum will carry you most of the way up this bit. The road then dips a little before climbing again on a wide well surfaced road to the highest
point as it crosses a bridge before turning left into Birdcage Walk. This road is undulating with a good road surface but being under trees, has poor lighting.

At the end of Birdcage Walk the course turns left for the plunge downhill back towards the town centre. At the bottom of the hill is a left hander into the finishing straight. This is a very fast finish to a race. There are manhole covers to negotiate on this corner so take care if it’s wet.
