Plymstock Oaks Mountain Bike Race

MTB XC , Plymouth – Sunday, 13 Jul 2014

Event Summary

Event Overview

This is the first race being held at our Rugby Club and will coincide with our Oaks Big Weekend.  The Weekend is free apart from race entry.  It includes free camping, a live band playing in our Marquee on the Saturday night which again is free. On the day of the race there will be a host of stalls and attractions as this is traditionally our Summer Fayre.

The aim of the Big weekend is to have family fun and for those of you who are not Rugby orientated we are good at that.  The Mountain Bike race is an added attraction this year and will intertwine with the Fayre, beer tent and campers.  The prime viewing points will be close at hand to see Mum or Dad fall off or the Kids wizz by.

The course will not be on the flat rugby pitches as you might have expected.  We are lucky that the area surrounding the pitches are exciting to ride on and with the help of British Cycling and experts from the Bike Celler cycle shop we have designed a course that will be exciting for everyone.

Food on Saturday night is available to purchase and on sunday we will have a selection of drinks and refreshments available.

About the Event

Info for Riders

There is plenty of free parking available and you can stay overnight. Refreshments are available. Toilets will be provided. There will be a maintenance and spare parts area available which will be staffed by The Bike Celler cycle shop. There will be the opportunity to register for the race on the day but if the race is full pre registered riders will have priority. It is a new race so we are unsure of the popularity of our event so we would urge you to pre register. Camping is available during Saturday and Sunday although you must clear the site by 18.00 hrs on the Sunday.
