Manx International 3-Day Cycling Race Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th August 2019
Manx International Cycling Ltd would like to confirm the following Road Closures to enable the above event to take place.
We are in the process of writing to Residents on the courses to ensure all are aware of arrangements that affect them.
We fully appreciate and understand that road closures cause inconvenience and disruption; therefore the closures have been designed to be as flexible as they can. Footpaths will remain open and pedestrians will be able to cross the roads, either under assistance from a marshal, or when it safe to do so. Organisers are hopeful roads will open well in advance of the published opening times.
A wider communication regarding community engagement and involvement will commence shortly encouraging residents to get involved with the event. However, in the meantime, please check our Frequently Asked Questions page for more specific details about the closures
