We are fortunate in the South East that we have the busiest domestic road race calendar in England. Throughout the spring and summer months, if a rider chooses to, you can pretty much race every night of the week.

The majority of road racing in our area is carried out as part of a league.  The Surrey Road Race League is the biggest and most successful racing league in the country and, if that wasn’t enough, we also have the South Eastern Road Race League right on our doorstep.  In addition to this, there are also a number of open road races and town centre circuit races during the season.  We also have three excellent purpose-built road race circuits that are closed to traffic, all within an hour’s drive of Crawley at Cyclopark in Kent, Redbridge Cycle Centre in East London and Hillingdon in West London.

Getting started with Road Racing

All cyclists taking part in road races have to have a racing licence which is obtained through British Cycling.  As a condition of membership with Crawley Wheelers we do ask that all members join a third party organisation for the purposes of insurance.  Therefore, if you are thinking of road racing, it makes financial sense to become a member of British Cycling as membership will include third party insurance.

Joining as a Silver or Gold member will allow you to obtain a free provisional racing licence.  This is a great way to get started as it allows you to try out a few races without having to pay for a full licence.  If you wish to continue racing or feel from the start that road racing is for you, then a full racing licence can be purchased through British Cycling with your membership.  Once you have your full licence, you are then able to start collecting points for every race in which you finish in the top 10.  All riders starting for the first time start at the introductory 4th category level and once you have obtained 10 points in one season you are promoted to 3rd category level.

Joining the Leagues

As a member of Crawley Wheelers you will be part of a club that is affiliated to both the Surrey League and the South Eastern Road Race League.  This means that, for an annual fee, you can join the leagues and get race entries at discounted rates.  Surrey League members also collect league points for every race they finish and more if you finish in the top 10 or 15 places.  At the end of the season all riders’ points are accumulated together to form a cash prize.
