Women's Beginner Race this Weekend!

If you want to get a taster of what road racing is like, there will be a women's beginner's race this Saturday at Longcross Test Track, near Chertsey.

The venue is a 1.7mile traffic-free circuit in this leafy part of Surrey. This venue was very popular for racing a few years ago until it was closed to cycle racing. This Saturday will be a one-off opportunity to race around it.

The race is open to Category 3, 4 and beginner women racers. Start time is 9.31 and race is around 30 miles. Enter in advance or on the day. Details on the British Cycling Calendar

There will be experienced London Dynamo racers chaperoning riders around the course during the race.

If on public transport you can get a train to Virginia Water and ride from there.
Alternatively, a group of London Dynamo riders will be leaving Richmond Park (Kingston Gate) at 8.15am to ride to the venue.

And there'll be lots of cake afterwards!

[Note: London Dynamo will also be hosting the Meet & Greet ride to Windsor the following day.]
