There is plenty of access to road racing in our area; there are races for all ability levels (including ‘Go Ride’ which is designed specifically to introduce you to racing and is great for children starting out) – there are plenty of races organized by the WXCRL, which take place at Barnsfield (Matchams) or on the Hampshire/Dorset borders; the TLI who have a calendar of events around the area (there is a popular ‘Heath’ race series near Beaulieu;) ‘Cycling South’ (a local arm of British Cycling) have an extensive calendar of closed circuit races in Portsmouth, Thruxton and other local venues.
