Berwick Wheelers CC is holding its 7th consecutive annual open 3/4 category road race based at the Etal Village Hall in Northumberland just tipping the scales at 40 miles.This year's event also features the women’s-only season opener for the Women's National Road Race Series and starts at 1230hr using exactly the same start, route, distance and finish.We are seeking approval from British Cycling and these fully supported events included first-aid and on-route mechanic. The fields are open to 80 riders in each race, utilise some of the Tour of Britain route for 2015 and 2019, including the challenging Ford Bank KOM climb. Again for this year we 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 will be neutralised up Ford Bank before the flag is dropped and the two-lap race begins. The uphill finish is on the main road halfway up Ford Bank.
