The Biking Belles Grand Prix

at the Goodwood Motor Circuit, West Sussex

Sunday August 31, 2014

'an important cycling event for women and an important fundraising event for women's charities'

This will be a fantastic event and the first of its kind at Goodwood.

The Chichester based ladies cycling club, The Biking Belles have joined forces with British Cycling who bring with them years of experience.

Entries will be accepted on the day but the cost will increase by £5 per entry.

The event opens at 8am with three sportives (35, 50 and 70 miles), all competitiors will do one lap of the Goodwood circuit and then leave to complete their sportives in the surrounding Sussex area.

Following their departure, the circuit will open at about 10am to the general public (women only) to cycle around and receive training from British Cycling.

As from 1pm we have the Elite National Womens Racing  - the highlight of the day and we are hoping for top women cyclists to enter. The first race will be the Lady March Grand Prix.

Early bird entries are now being accepted online at the British Cycling website: www.britishcyling.org.uk

We’re selling retail space at the circuit and are hoping local businesses will get involved and support this local event.

 The event is supporting Boot Out Breast Cancer - www.bootoutbreastcancer.org.uk. A great little charity run by a team of enthusiastic women raising funds for much needed equipment in the treatment of breast cancer

The sportives departure times are as follows:

70m route - 8am - 8.30am

50 m route - 8.30am - 9am

35m route - 9am - 9.30am

There will be a sportive briefing at 7.30am at the sportive registration desk.

There is a small section of this route which has, at the moment, loose stones on the lane, as you turn off the Chilgrove road towards the Mardens. All participants will be emailed prior to the event date and there will be clear signs warning of any problems ahead.
