Latest youth calendar‏

Please find a the latest version of the youth calendar. It shows what races are available for youth riders up until September. I have only put down those that take place on a weekend – there are others that run during the week (see the BC website).

I have also added a selection of time trials – note that you have to be 12 or over to compete in these. As the number of circuit races seems to have declined this year you may want to think about the Victoria CC series of time trials. Although these can be ridden solo they can also be ridden as a pair or a three and makes a good introduction to time-trialling (or good practice for riding in a break!). If you are interested in riding in any of these let me know and I will see if I can find a ‘volunteer’ to ride with you.
