Our Summer Series of Racing starts on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May and runs for 11 weeks through to Monday 15th July.
As with past years, as well as British Cycling Points awarded for A/B Category races, series points are also awarded for each race attended. A bonus 5 points are awarded to each rider who compete in the first five events, and a further 5 points for attending the second 5 events. The 11th event does not attract series points and is used as the awards ceremony for the series. Britsih Cycling points were appropriate will still be awarded.
With all our Summer Series races, gear checks for youth riders are conducted AFTER the event.
