Road Riding


All road racing for Under 16s is on traffic-free road circuits or on closed roads.

In the summer there is weekly closed-circuit racing at the following venues in SE Region:

Crystal Palace Park

Tuesday evenings April - August. Subject to cancellation if wet, so always check event website: or Twitter feed: CP Crits @CPCrits before setting off.

Cyclopark, Gravesend

Friday evenings May - July

There is also youth racing at Hillingdon Cycling Circuit (Central Region) and Redbridge Cycle Circuit and Lee Valley Velopark (Eastern Region).


All national cycling federations insist that young riders ride restricted gears for Road and Track, in order to protect growing bodies. At most races gears will be checked before you are allowed to sign on, and you can be disqualified if your gears are not correct for your age category. Click here for a Quick Guide for riders and parents, or ask one of the coaches if you need more help in getting your gears sorted.
