Upcoming women's races

This weekend - Saturday 19th June

This Saturday sees the next round of the League, at the Smithfield Nocturne. If you've signed up, you'll have the exciting experience of riding a fast circuit round central London with cheering crowds to support you! And if you're not riding it yourself, there's a whole afternoon of cycling racing and other activities, so why not go down to watch and support?

Latest news: The organiser has confirmed that he is accepting entries on the day for the Women's Criterium Race. Turn up at least an hour before the event, which starts at 7.30pm.

A (non-league) alternative for less experienced riders this Saturday is Hillingdon. There's a 3rd and 4th cat women's race, and a Go-race event for novice women - if you or someone you know has never raced before, this is a rare opportunity to race with other beginners.

Women's race at Bike Radar Live

The weekend of 10-11 July sees Bike Radar Live taking place at Brands Hatch, packed with all manner of cycling-related activities. During the weekend there's a series of HotChillee Circuit Races, including a women-only race at midday on the Sunday. It's your chance to race on the iconic, 1.9km Brands Hatch circuit.

Entry is £5 in advance, or £10 on the day - though you'll also need a ticket for the Bike Radar Live festival. You'll be eligible for BC points (it's not an LWCR league race though).
