Summer League

The 2016 summer league kicks off on Friday evening 29th April. Following a review of the 2015 Summer race league we have decided to make some changes. This year we will be going away from the traditional format of seven road races and adding in some different event types.

This year we will be running the following
  • 2 time trial events
  • 2 road races
  • 2 novelty events
The novelty events will consist of a Cyclo-cross type event and an "Orienteering" event - full details will follow closer to the time.

In keeping with tradition, the first event will be "The Annual Race of Truth " (Time Trial) which will take place on Friday 29th April on the N52 from Carrick, Dalystown to Tyrrellspass - this is the same route as last years time trial.

We'll be keeping this page updated during the course of the summer and will post reports and pictures on each of the stages as they take place.  So watch this space and enjoy the 2016 league, hopefully we'll get the weather and the numbers to make it an interesting and enjoyable summer of cycling.

Key Points
  • The league is open to FULLY PAID up club members. The standard Lakeside Wheelers membership (Club Competition) is sufficient to participate. Membership payments will not be accepted by race organisers at events.
  • Roads are not closed for races so normal rules of the road apply. It is not a marshal’s responsibility to stop traffic. Each participant must take responsibility for their own safety and ride responsibly.
  • We require the goodwill of the residents along the race route for it to operate. Riders must ensure this goodwill continues by riding responsibly.
  • Riders will be required to sign on each evening. Sign-on will be at 6pm. Sign-on will close at 6:30pm. Please sign on immediately when you arrive!
  • Each participant must marshal at least one event.
