Leicester Cycle Circuit Family Fun Day @ Leicester Cycle Circuit - New College Leicester | England | United Kingdom

A brand new purpose built cycle circuit is nearing completion at New College, New Parks, near Leicester. It’s one km round with changing rooms, toilets and weekend cafe within the adjacent college buildings. Plenty of parking as well.

We’ve booked the circuit to give it a try on Sunday afternoons 25th June and 23rd July from 2pm until 4pm. So chance to race/ride in the morning, wash the car, cut the grass… and then bring your kids / grandkids to the circuit in the afternoon. (Any age, provided they are able to ride their bike safely). Why not bring a picnic, drinks and sun cream, as good weather has also been ordered!

The current plan is to initially let everyone ride round the circuit to get familiar with it, then to alternate between some mini races / skills tests for the kids and whilst they get their breath back, allow the adults the tear into each other with events like the devil take the hindmost (last rider eliminated each lap), points and scratch races. Maybe even a team pursuit. A good chance to try out bunch riding.

All just for fun with no prizes and no race licenses needed.

Names and £5 per family per day or £3 per individual to Alan Vallance or Tracy Symonds. Payment preferred by BACS to our bank account if possible using “Family day – June or July or both” as the reference. Or just hand over the cash when you see us!

Should be a fun afternoon for everyone, so please support this new event and let’s make it a success.

    To secure your place, please let Greg Hodges know and transfer £18 (£13 for under 18) to the club’s bank account, ref “track”. (Message me if you need the bank details) If you need to hire a bike, 🚴🏻‍♂️ please let Greg know, adding £13.80 to your payment. Payment by 2nd March latest please.

    You’ll need Look Keo shoe plates for the hire bike. Shoes can be hired if needed.

    This is quite an investment for the club to hire the track, so your support for this event would be appreciated.
