2018 Reivers Road Race
Saturday 24th March
Wheelers CC will hold its 5th consecutive annual road race based at the Etal Village Hall in Northumberland.
Continuing with the format established in 2017, Berwick Wheelers are proud
to host a category 3/4 race just tipping the scales at
40 miles and a 2/3/4 category race of just over 60 miles. This has
been approved by British Cycling and is a fully supported event including first-aid and on-route mechanic. The field is open to 60 riders in each race, utilises some of the Tour of
Britain route for 2015, and takes on the challenging Ford Bank KOM climb.
Reivers Road Race starts at the village hall and is neutralised up
Ford Bank (for both races) before the flag is dropped and the race is
started. The category 3/4 race will tackle the 19.70 mile circuit of
the Reivers Road Race loop twice in total with an uphill finish on the main road. Please note that this is a change to the finish for 2018 - instead of turning left and heading up Hay Farm hill, the race will continue on and finish on Ford Bank. Also new for this year (2018) we have a Prime award - this will be for the first rider over the finish line on the first lap for the cat 3/4 race and the first rider over the finish line on the second lap for the Cat 2/3/4 race.
The 2/3/4 race will tackle the same loop three times in total before the same uphill finish on the main road.
