This is how it works

Not everyone can commit to a full season of racing. Whether because of work, injury, family commitments or all three, life has a habit of getting in the way. For 2017,we will run a short league of seven races for the Crit/RR league and seven TTs for the Time Trial League.

These are all existing fixtures on the race calendar – we’re just pulling them together as a league to ensure a high turnout and a fantastic competition at each one.

When it happens

The LWR Crit/RR League: April to June.

The LWR TT League: March to June.

What it costs

There is a one off membership fee to join London Women’s Racing of £15 per individual- this gets you access into the Crit/RR league and the TT league. Alternatively, there is a charge of £60 per club, which covers an unlimited number of riders (RiderHQ fee included) for both leagues.

Please note race entry fees are extra and are paid to the race organiser as usual.

What do you get when you join LWR?

  • Entry into both the LWR Crit/Road Race and TT League (no extra fee payable)
  • Invites to the London Women’s Forum, held on a regular basis.
  • Invites to various events across London and the South East linked to London Women’s racing
  • Partner offers

Who it’s for

Female British Cycling licensed category 3/4 riders for the Crit/RR.

LWR aims to fill the gap for people racing at entry to mid-level. If you’re brand new to racing, fantastic – come along and give it a go. Meanwhile you  third cats can test yourselves against a strong field in a range of disciplines. The main thing is we’re all here to race safely, improve our skills and have bucket loads of fun (with a big party at the end!).

How to win

You earn league points for yourself and your team or club each time you race. The points form an overall ranking for individual riders, plus separate rankings for riders of each category. This gives fourth cats as much to race for as second cats.

At the end of each league, there’ll be prizes for the highest individual point scorer overall, the highest in each category, and for the team with the most combined points.
