* Lower entry fee applies to NWCCA League Members.

For non British Cycling members, a British Cycling day membership costing £3 is applicable at every round for Senior, Veteran, Junior, Under 23 categories of any gender.

If you plan on riding the majority of league rounds it may be worthwhile purchasing a British Cycling RACE membership. A full race license isn’t required for our league rounds, the provisional license that comes with the RACE membership is sufficient.

If you have a British Cycling RIDE membership, this does not include a provisional license so the BC day membership will be applicable.


Counting events

We’ve been asked a few times about the number of counting events for this season. The rule is still 80% of events minus any clashes with National Trophy weekends (The clash counts for a whole weekend, so the WHEELBASE event -and the January event at Waddow Hall – will be taken from the total number of counting events).

We only know what 80% will be when we know how many events have actually taken place. We’ve had late cancellations in the past.
