Ipswich BC as part of the Eastern Road League is proud to present a Reg B race for 3rd and 4th Cats (0930hrs), and a Women only race (1300hrs) on the same day for 2 / 3/ 4’s.
Working with British Cycling regional representatives and local authorities, Ipswich Bicycle Club has a history of providing quality racing in the area, and the Gosbeck circuit is quite a challenging course. The neutralised roll out from the Village Hall heads north to Helmingham and Framsden Mill, where at the top of the climb and after five laps the race ends. The course itself turns left to Petaugh after Framsden, left to Crowfield and sharp left back to Gosbeck.
This year we have employed the services of the National Escort Group who with their motorcycles help to ensure the safety of the riders and the public.
Whilst the riders are racing a team of volunteers has worked hard in order to support the race on the day, and in the weeks beforehand. These people give up their own spare time to support this event, and are appreciated enormously by the organiser.
Women only racing is becoming more popular and this year a field of 40+ has already signed up for the afternoon race. Riders in this race are coming from as far afield as Manchester and Kidderminster, with lots of Eastern counties riders taking part. The Men’s race has a full field of 70 riders, all from Eastern Road Race League member clubs.
The Women’s Only Reg B has 19 places left. If you would like to enter please contact Paulrippon32@btinternet.com, who will endeavour to get you a place before the race day.
