Do you want to race the Tour Series closed road circuit?

Ride the Croydon Tour Series race

Fancy yourself as a bit of a bike racer but don’t have the time to do the full training to commit to getting up to the Elite level required to ride city centre circuit races? Well, thanks to the Tour Series now you can.

If you can get yourself down to Croydon in South London on the 18th of May you’re in chance with a shot at glory in various different races on the same closed road circuit the pros will be racing on later in the evening.

Croydon Council have been in touch and are running the following events with the proceeds going to charity.

 

 

If you’ve got a team, either from work or from your cycle club the team race is excellent. If you’re on your own we’d suggest the Brompton race (we reckon you could even hire one from a Brompton dock in advance if you plan ahead). You might even find you’ve got a knack for folding bike racing and want to have a crack at the World Championships later on in the year.

Hang around after your race, enjoy the attractions that are laid on around the closed road circuit and then see the pros battle it out in front of the huge crowds that have been a feature of this race the last couple of years.

We’ll be there all day joining in. See you there!
