Go Ride Racing - Saturday 3rd July


This Saturday 3rd July Summit’s band of coaches is running the first British Cycling Go Ride Racing event in our region at Lotts Wood, near Hyde Heath, Amersham.
Aimed at encouraging young riders to take up the sport, we are expecting entrants from far and wide as well as Summit’s regular band of 6 to 16s.
The riders will be signing on at 09.15am then after a bike/clothing check and some warm-up games, will be having a mass start coaching session to get them ready for the races. There will be two styles of race, a short course XC and longer ‘enduro’ all held on our junior race course. Riders will score points in both races which are then added together to decide the podium places.
Prizes have been kindly donated by On 2 Wheels in Bourne End and Leisure Wheels in Hemel Hempsead old town plus the Summit club.
Entry to the event costs just £3 but we ask all riders to register in advance at summitmtb@gmail.com
