All our races are for bikes with human power only.
Entry is strictly only in advance, but we leave it open as late as possible; up to the Thursday before a Sunday race, or up until Tuesday if it’s a Wednesday race.

We’ve been doing lots of trail maintenance and widening over the winter, with just a few new bits to make things more fun.
See you at the races!!
