Safety during Nordic Championships

Together with Road Saftey, mobile guards, commissioners and our  own guards, will IF Frøy do the utmost to ensure that security is as good as possible.

We have collaborated with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, the police, Viken county municipality and the Norwegian Cycling Association to find routes that are both sporting good and traffic safe. At the same time, we want the race to create as little trouble as possible for the residents in the area.

The roads both in the  Time Trial and the Road  Race,will be closed in the opposite direction of the race. The exception is a bit on the Algarheim road and just before the roundabout with the E16 in the joint start. In both places there is a wide and nice road.

We remind cyclists to stay on the right side of the road. Even if the road is closed, we cannot guarantee that motorists will not enter the oncoming direction without detection of it.

During the time trial, we have stationary guards (who can stop traffic) at all important intersections. We also have mobile guards on motorbikes and   commissioners  cars on the route. During the Road Race  there are stationary guards at all important intersections. At the junction at the roundabout over the E16 there are also police. In front of each starting grouå there is a mobile guard on a motorcycle and a front car. Behind the field there is a commissioners car. We also have

Danish and Finnish riders must show a license

Riders from Denmark and Finland must show a valid Masters license when picking up their entry number.

All cyclists from Norwegian and Swedish clubs have had their license checked and therefore do not need to present a license certificate.

The envelopes of participants from Danish and Finnish clubs are marked with an red L (see picture) making it is easy for the secretariat and participants to see that the license should be checked.

Start, finish and parking

Start and finish are at the intersection of Myrhusvegen and Furubakken at Borgen. The address is Myrhusvegen 3, 2040 Kløfta

This is a few hundred meters from the secretariat and parking. Originally, the start of the Road race was supposed to be there, but it had to be moved because the route had to be changed.

Parking for participants is at Borgen skole/Alfhallen. It is on the other side of the road from the secretariat. From there you can wheel on small roads to the start and finish. We ask that participants do NOT park on the small roads in the area.

The easiest way to get access to the area is to exit from exit 1 on the E16 between Kløfta and Kongsvinger. From there it is a few hundred meters to the parking and secretariat. It is also easy to get in and out of the area without getting into the routes for the rides.
