SW XC Youth Team at Hadleigh Park

A team of SW Riders have set off for Hadleigh Park this weekend, including Lucy Allan from Yogi, a regular club member on the Fun Rides. Lucy is racing as Team Fully Sussed/Certini as part of the SW Team taking part in the Inter Regionals at Hadleigh Farm, Essex.  More details here on XCRACER

If anyone has teenagers that are thinking of coming along to events, then now is a great time.  British Cycling are putting a fair amount of time and effort into the regional MTB Cross Country scene to develop potential under 16 riders.

In addition to our Fun Rides on the 1st and 3rd saturdays of each Month which are purely recreational but excellent for bulding skills, there are two Soggy Bottoms Cross Country races this winter, and as they are right on our doorstep they are a great event to get started for adults and teens alike.  Entries for the Soggy Bottoms are cheaper if you enter before 11th October.  You can find out more here including a Video of the last course http://www.xcracer.com/soggy-bottom-10years.html

Teenagers are very welcome on all the MTB Rides, but as always please ensure you attend a Fun Ride first before riding with any of the faster weekly rides.  It’s probably best to get to get in touch wiht John Allan first though using the contact details in the weekly rides.
