PPYCC “Spring In The Park” Race Evening at Cyclopark Friday 11th May !

We are excited to announce that PPYCC are hosting an evening of Spring In The Park races at Cyclopark on Friday 11th May. This is part of a 10 week Friday night youth race series that many of our riders have competed in previous years.

Races are for boys and girls from u8 – u16. Sign-on and gear check open 1 hour before the races commence :

Age   Race Time  Duration

u8s      18:30         10 mins

u10s    18:45         15 mins

u12s    19:10         20 mins

u14s    19:40         25 mins

u16s    20:15         30 mins

For the event to run we really need your support : 1 volunteer for sign on, 1 volunteer for gear check and 4 circuit marshals. The more volunteers we have the better so that people can be rotated out and enjoy watching the racing. Please drop me an email at goodwillpaul@hotmail.com if you can help. No prior experience necessary for marshalling or sign on.

The event details are on British Cycling event website:


… but entry and payment are on the day of the race.

When you arrive you’ll need your British Cycling licence for sign on and will then be gear checked. After this riders are provided with a timing chip for their bike which provides lap times and overall finishing positions. You’ll then have time to relax and warm up on the top circuit or rollers before the races start.

For those that haven’t been before the circuit and facilities are excellent. The cafe will be open for refreshments and we’ve got our fingers crossed for a warm sunny evening.  We really hope see as many of our riders competing as possible so please support this event. There is also a skate park that the children are free to use before and after their race.

You don’t need to wait until 11th May though, the first evening of Spring In The Park races is Friday 27th April, with sign-on and race times as above.
