Freedom to Ride

16, 23, 30 January
& 6 February 2021

HQ Croft Motor Circuit

Ride as far as you want, as fast as you want. Great for people new to organised events or for those wanting to get some structured training in car-free!

Brilliant for young riders – we had families riding together for the first time at the summer events!

09:00 – 11:00 | 4 Saturdays in Jan and Feb 2021

Sadly due to Covid restrictions introduced 4th Jan 2021 we are not able to host the Winter edition of these events. We aim to be back with the Summer Freedom To Ride. If you entered the Winter Edition please login to your account to process a refund.

Freedom to Ride – New Winter Dates Added!

Come join us on a Saturday Morning in Jan and Feb 2021 for this new cycling format! Great fun, social, competitive if you want it to be, traffic-free and totally awesome series of events! COVID safe of course.

Croft is a very wide circuit so we can accommodate the more recreational riders on the left of the road with the faster people seeking lap numbers on the right. There is a huge expanse of space and we’ve worked with British Cycling and respected medical experts to make this a COVID safe event for all.

Arrive from 08:45 for a simple and distanced registration process, we issue you with a timing chip and rider number then off you go! We record your lap times and as it’s a closed road you can effectively race! Not everyone is performance-focused so this is a very open event, totally suitable for families wanting to enjoy some traffic free riding.

Sausage bun for all, veggie options of course, all included in the entry fee. There will also be an on-site mechanic and photographer at all events as well as the Coffee Van. Stick around and watch the racing afterwards or even have a go!
