The famous Silverstone circuit and surrounding land will be devoted to pedal not petrol power on this day. There will be track racing, at 10, 20 or 50k distances; Central CX league’s opening event of the season and Go Ride coaching and racing for under 16-year-olds.
Oxonian CC will be there as one of the clubs contributing to the Go-Ride coaching and helping with the races for young riders in the afternoon. So, if you’d like to volunteer to assist us, you’d be welcome. And if you have children or know of keen young riders who would like to take advantage of this one-off opportunity do let them know. AND it’s free!
Registration is on the day, but it would help Catherine Ruffley, Club and Coaching Officer, Central Region, British Cycling if you would let her know if you’re intending to be there, and with what age child [please contact her by text or email: 07940 738285, mobile, Catherine Ruffley.
