Race Route Reversed!!!!
As per the note on the home page. The direction of racing has been reversed from that which has been originally published in order to provide for a safer transition through the key pinch point junction at the bottom of Cross Street. This means that the direction is opposite to that shown on all the race route maps.
The route will now be:
Start and Finish on the Strand but then ride towards the Civic Centre dog legging around the Quay, up North Walk, U Turn around traffic island back along North Walk, and back along Castle Street, then turn left onto Cross Street, right onto High street, right onto Boutport Street, right onto the Square, right onto Strand to Finish.

You will need to be logged in to British Cycling Mapping to see the route map above. You can also locate it by searching for "Barnstaple" within the BC Mapping tool.
You can also access the map as a PDF file on the next page or by clicking here.
The Youth Circuit is a smaller circuit. Instead of turning right at the bottom of Cross Street, the Youth riders will make a left turn (they will only be able to make a left turn as the race route will be barriered off and obvious) and turn back onto the start/finish straight on the Strand
