With more interest being shown in off-road cycling several local clubs and cycle shops in Cumbria are getting together to run a series of summer cyclo-cross races throughout Cumbria.

The races are to be held under British Cycling’s Go-Cross banner that promotes off road races for all ages using cyclo-cross bikes or mountain bikes.

There will be six different Go-Cross events throughout Cumbria this summer, at venues in Ulverston, Ambleside, Whitehaven, Whinlatter, Sedbergh, and Penrith.  More may be added if the events are a success.  At all the venues there will be racing for under 10s, under 12s, under 14 and under 16s, ladies, juniors, seniors, and veterans.

The races are aimed at all riders that are interested in racing cross-country from novice to experienced. Riders do not have to belong to a club, or have to enter the event beforehand, the can just turn up and pay a small entry fee to have a go.

Further information on future rounds will follow.
