2019 Reivers Road Race
Saturday 23rd March
Race details (to be confirmed)
Wheelers CC will hold its 6th consecutive annual road race based at the Etal Village Hall in Northumberland.
This year's event will feature a women’s road race just tipping the scales at
40 miles, and an open 3/4 category race of the same distance. We will be seeking approval from British Cycling and it will be 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. Again for this year we also have a Prime award which is for the first rider over the finish line on the first lap of each race.
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 women’s 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 at Ford Bank.
The 3/4 race will be over exactly the same start, route, distance and finish.
