The cyclocross season has now started (Sept to Jan) and there are various events within our area. Events usually consist of many laps of a 1.5 – 2 mile course having wooded trails, grass, hills and obstacles that require the rider to dismount or bunny hop over it. The races are 30 mins to an hour and there are usually categories for Youths/Seniors/Veterans.

The races in our area are part of the Wessex Cycle League which Gillingham Wheelers have now affiliated to, details of events, how to enter etc are on their website –

For those that are interested there is a coaching session at Keynsham next Wed eve from 6.30pm as detailed here:
