After the success of last year’s event in conjunction with the Tour of Britain passing through the village, Old Buckenham is keen to establish a yearly Cycling Festival and the Diss CC is helping them to achieve this. You can see by visiting https://obcycling.org/ the effort that is going in to make it a success. All we need to make it a success is full fields for the Crit races round the Village Green on the Saturday and the rather different Ford Anglia Sportive on the Sunday.
The crit circuit is 1.1km long, almost flat with 5 corners (1 quite sharp) through grassland and woods throughout.
There will be no opportunity for entries on the day, as the MyLaps timing system used so successfully at Lotus League this year needs to be loaded with all the entries a few days before the race. Please enter via the British Cycling website by 28th Aug.
The Ford Anglia is a different and novel sort of Sportive! Enter online at the British Cycling website.
Enjoy a ride on minor roads and the ambience of being fed and watered on the Village Green at the midpoint and after by the Village WI and the Beer Festival.
