Stafford Road Club – Go-Ride Racing
for novice racers up to 16 years old
Go-Ride Racing 2017
For 2017 there is a six race programme of races in the Go-Ride Racing Series.
Riders will be able to compete in at least three races per event. Races will be in groups of similar age or handicapped to give every rider a chance to win.
Bike – bring your own road bike, mountain bike, BMX or leisure bike.
Safety helmet – helmets must be worn to race and should be in good condition with the appropriate CE standards stickers attached.
Gloves – it is always preferable to wear gloves when racing.
Clothing – needs to be appropriate for the weather conditions and a physical activity. Warm clothing should be available for breaks between races. Ensure that clothing is not loose enough to entangle with the bike.
Food and drink – access to a drink of water or juice is always a good idea when doing physical activity; and also a small food snack, especially for afterwards when the session has been strenuous.
Clothing, helmet and bikes will be checked before the racing starts.
