Wreivers Women's Road Race (Cancelled)

Road , Cornhill-on-Tweed – Sunday, 17 Sep 2017

Event Summary

This event has been cancelled

Event Overview

For the first time Berwick Wheelers are hosting a womens two stage race named the Wreivers road race which is building on the success of the Reivers road race as hosted in March.

The first stage will be a 3.4 mile TT leaving Etal in one minute intervals up to the old friendly hound pub which was iconically the king of the mountains banner for the tour of britain stage held on this very route.

The second stage following the TT will be the 40.8 mile road race which leaves from the same location as the TT adjacent to our HQ at Etal village hall.  Tackling a 19.70 mile circuit of the Reivers road race loop the event has proved both challenging, competitive and an exciting race.  For 2017 Berwick Wheelers are proud to host a new format with a catagory 2/3/4 race for women only just tipping the scales at 40miles.

The main difference in the circuit is there is an added section with an additional climb which will certainly test the legs and for the first time the end finish line will complete the loop on ford bank itself.

A fully supported event including first aid and on route mechanic means we have the competitors covered for most eventualitites.

The Rievers Road Race starts at Etal Village Hall and is neutralisied up Ford Bank before the flag is dropped and the race is started. This race will tackle the loop twice and with an uphill finish up ford bank the event will be extremely competitive right to the bitter end.  

Information on the race will be emailed to competitors as soon as possible and results will be published both on www.berwick-wheelers.com and British Cycling.

About the Event

This event has been cancelled

Info for Riders

The Wreivers RR will be held on largely the same course as the Reivers road race held this year in march and we are hoping for this event to be an inaugural part of the womens racing calendar. 


The format will be as 2 laps of the 19.70mile loop of a testing but opportunistic circuit for the catagory 2/3/4 competitors.


To allow the field to settle and get a bit of heat into the tired season legs the race will remain neutralised right until the easier side of Ford village (3.5km into the first lap) thereby taking the sting out of the Ford bank climb at the start of the first lap. The finish will remain in complete the 40.8 mile circuit mid way up ford bank on the last lap.
