ACC is affiliated to the Notts & Derby Cyclocross league. This is a series of off-road events run from the start of September through to the end of January on Saturdays. Venues are usually parks such as Markeaton Park. It’s guaranteed to keep you fit and motivated through winter. Cyclocross, Gravel or MTB bikes can be used to compete. There’s a range of age categories including new for 2019 a woman’s only race. The woman’s only race caters for all abilities and is a great entry level way for women to give it a go, no matter what your fitness level – the emphasis is on fun and enjoyment and is not overly serious.
Entry is through the British Cycling website by clicking on ‘Dirt’, then clicking Cyclocross and finally Cyclocross calendar. You will need to have BC membership.
