I was n't thinking straight last night that was 3 events out of 4 for me either cancelled or course changed.
In the cold light of day what we might think about in the future is just to move the start,it would be a non standard distance but at least it would be a ride. Yesterday we could have started at the top of the hill (the 25 start) and either finished at the 25 finish or the normal 10 depending on what was possible for the timekeeper.
From the notices on the course I fear there may be other lane closures in the weeks to come where the above wont be practical.
I agree with you these days you cannot run a race where the road is narrowed by cones,no leg to stand on if an accident occured,traffic counts too high and driving standards these days too low.
