Unfortunately the Beard Cup will not be run in 2020 after all.

2020 has been a difficult year, but we hope the worst of it is over now with some things returning towards normality.One event which is going to take place is the Manchester & District CTC Beard Cup Hill Climb, which will be held on Sunday the 16th August 2020 with the First Rider at 14:00. This is one month ahead of its usual slot to accommodate other events in a compressed season.

Come along and cheer the competitors as they hurtle (if that's the right word!) up Huddersfield Road in Diggle. Better still, have a go yourself!

The course is just 1 mile, starting from the Carr Lane/Harrop Green Lane/Huddersfield Road junction (grid reference SE 004 081) and finishing just short of the junction with A62.

There will be some changes to the organisation to maintain compliance with the current government social distancing rules
  • It's a standing start for everyone, so no push-off on the start line
  • Rider numbers are limited to 120
  • Preference in the field will be given to riders from Manchester & District CTC
  • Thereafter, preference to other riders will be given on a 'first come first served' basis

Click here for the Entry form.

There are awards for Fastest team of three, Men, Women, U16's boys and girls and the much coveted 'Tourist Trophy' for those who like to climb hills with mudguards and saddlebag! If the funds will stretch to it, there may also be prizes for Vet40, Vet50 and Vet60.

The Ride Headquarters is Diggle Band Club which is just below the start of the climb on Huddersfield Road where you will pick up your race numbers and which will have the Result Board. Pie & Peas will be available for a very reasonable charge and the Bar will be open. We ask you to observe any restrictions in the Band Club and at the road-side in line with current Covid-19 guidelines.

Deadline for entries is 4th August, or when the Start List is full, whichever comes earlier. We may take Entries on the day if we haven't exceeded 120 riders, but these will not be eligible for prizes. Hint, get your entry the Organiser ASAP!

The Beard Cup is organised by East Lancashire Road Club/Rochdale CTC on behalf of Manchester & District CTC.Entries to: DAVID TRIPPIER, Hill Cottage, Buckstones Road, Shaw, Oldham, OL2 8LJ.
