Part criterium, part obstacle race, the LCC Urban Cycle Cross will pitch men against women and rider against rider in the ultimate race of truth. On every lap competitors will ride a section of the course, before dismounting and carrying their bikes over barriers, detours and man-made 'urban' obstacles. Think Wacky Races, IG London Nocturne-style. Whether you're a Penelope Pitstop or a Dick Dastardly, if you're over 16, have a bicycle of any kind, and you're up for a fun challenge, the LCC Urban Cycle Cross is open to YOU. Skin-tight lycra racing kit is optional ...
FORMAT AND RULES
The race will start at 4pm with capacity for 40 riders. The only criteria for entry is that you do not hold a racing licence, making the LCC Urban Cycle Cross more inclusive for everyday cyclists of all kinds. The first lap will be a trial lap to allow contestants to familiarise themselves with the obstacles on the course. The race then begins with 10 laps (approximately 15 minutes racing time).
