Road , Benwick – Sunday, 26 Jul 2015

Event Summary

This event has been cancelled

Event Overview

The Benwick Kermesse is a new race and forms a part of the Whittlesey Cycling Weekend.


The 57 mile race will cover six laps of a 9.5 mile circuit based on the Fenland village of Benwick. The course includes some narrow stretches but is generally well surfaced and best is described as 'spirit level flat'


The race will start and finish in the High Street by 'The Five Awls' public house. The village residents have promised to make the day a truly festive occasion. 

This race is one of three taking place on Sunday 26th July, 2015:-

The Circuit of the Fens Pro-Elite Classic - 135 miles

The Circuit of the Fens Road Race - 75 miles

The Benwick Kermesse - 57 miles

All three races will benefit from a rolling road closure, enforced by Cambridgeshire police and supported by NEG safety marshals. Each race will also have it's own neutral service vehicles, following medical team, broom wagon and police tail-car.


Don't miss out on this unique opportunity for club riders to race on the road under the same conditions as the top UK based teams and individual stars - 100 places available.


The early start will enable you to stay on and support the Circuit of the Fens Pro-Elite Classic.
