Wheelers CC will hold its 6th consecutive annual open 3/4 category road race based at the Etal Village Hall in Northumberland and just tipping the scales at
40 miles. This year's event will also feature an additional women’s-only road race starting at 1230hr using exactly the same start, route, distance and finish.
We have approval from British Cycling and these will be fully supported events including first-aid and on-route mechanic. The fields are open to 80 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.
Both races start at Etal village hall and are neutralised up
Ford Bank before the flag is dropped and the race is
started. The women’s race will also tackle the same 19.70 mile circuit of
the Reivers Road Race loop twice in total with the same uphill finish on the main road halfway up Ford Bank.
