Cyclo-cross (CX) is always fun, sometimes muddy, and is an ideal way to start racing. he official season runs from 1st September to early February, but the last few years have seen some "Summer 'Cross" races in the South London area.

Local races have an informal, friendly atmosphere and you don't normally need to enter in advance. Mountain bikes are welcome at most races and the non-technical nature of the courses means that almost anyone can take part and enjoy a race.

We hold CX training sessions during the autumn at David Weir Leisure Centre, Sutton. Groups are split by age and ability.

How to get in to cyclo-cross

There are separate races for younger riders (Under-10, Under-12, Under-14, Under-16 categories) where entry fees are very low, especially if you pay in advance. Very much a family day out, many parents take part too.

Our local league is the London & SE 'Cross League. Many of our riders compete at National Trophy and Championships.
