Go-ride racing and club picnic!

In two weeks time, on Saturday July 16th, we will be hosting the 3rd event in the Sussex Go-Ride clubs Racing Cluster, aimed at riders who are new to racing and would like to gain some more experience racing (further information below). This will be coupled with a Go-Ride event, and PPYCC are also organising a club social picnic to follow the racing.

Information from British Cycling regarding the Racing Clusters:
The Development team are pleased to announce a new project for 2016 – GoRide Racing Clusters.

In partnership with key GoRide Racing registered clubs, the region will be promoting 3 County Based Leagues, covering different disciplines of Cycle Sport.

Clubs are grouped into Kent, Surrey & Sussex Clusters, and those promoting clubs will compete in a Club League and a Regional Inter Club Championships at Cyclopark in September. Riders should not be already racing at Regional Level.
