Events & Races

We have a varied selection of events during 2017 – from short hill climbs to Cyclo-cross with lots of racing in between.

We urge members to support the events and try to enter or volunteer where possible.

There’s also a spread of National Clarion (NC) events to enter too. They’re a great opportunity to take part in historic championships, whether you’re there for the atmosphere or challenging for a podium place. Each of the trophies has a story to tell, with winners dating back to the 1930’s in some cases. To find further information please click this LINK
