Want to give it a try

Come down and try a couple of coached sessions first.

The Central Cyclo Cross League is now up and running with 14 events registered over the winter.

There are races for U10s, U12s, Youth, Novices, V40, V50, Juniors, Women and seniors.

While the parents race there will be U10s and U12s Go-Ride Fun races and coaching at most CXL events.

TCC are affiliated to the League and your points will accumulate over the season for overall rankings.

Information on all fixtures and online entry can be found here:

Enter via the British Cycling Website.


Why Not?

I’d encourage everyone to give CX a go, it definitely improves your fitness as well as confidence and handling skills on a bike.  It will only take one race for you to love it – it’s also a great way to spend wintery Sundays.  There are race reports and pictures from last season’s cross races on the TCC website which will hopefully give you a feel for the types of courses and amount of mud you’ll encounter.

Here’s a little taster video which hopefully helps you understand what it’s all about.
