Re: The Macc Monster - Sunday 30th September

26 September, 2012 03:57PM
It is with great regret to inform you all that we have had to take the decision to postpone this weekend’s Macc Monster Cycle Sportive due to the weather conditions and the unprecedented amount of rainfall this week.

As you can imagine this has not been an easy decision to make as we have many people signed up to the event and we apologise for disappointing you all.
However, the safety of everyone involved is our top priority.

Following a risk assessment carried out this morning, we have had reports from the area, in particular the road through Macclesfield Forest doesn’t look good.
The road is very steep and narrow and due to the weather it is now covered in gravel and mud as well as having water still running down it.

Also, there have been Amber Weather warnings from the MET Office for most of the north west, including areas of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire.
Over the tops on the Peak District will be particularly treacherous, not only because they are exposed to the elements but also due to the excessive rain.
There is heavy rain forecasted for the whole of Sunday including winds of over 30mph.

As you can imagine this is very disappointing for the charity and indeed for you but we hope that you understand our reasons. As we have said your safety is our priority.

The Macc Monster will return in April 2013 - Hopefully the weather will be kinder to us then!
