The club has formed a beginners race league with our colleagues at Bigfoot go-ride, Herne Hill Youth CC and Limited Edition Cycling. These races are designed to give anyone the chance to have a go at racing in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. You don’t need to be a member or have a license and you can ride any bike. In association with British Cycling’s Go Ride Racing concept these races are designed to encourage more young people into entry-level bike racing – a stepping-stone between school or club cycle coaching sessions and regional level cycling competitions.
Types of racing have included:-
- cyclo cross
- road race
- mountain bike
- grass track
The league now has eight events per season with individual time trials and mass races for girls and boys and we have an overall league competition with different age group winners again for girls and boys. The league is scored from the riders best results from 5 races out of the 8.
