2016 saw our first Cyclocross training day held at Cyclopark, Gravesend and was run by BC coaches Huw Williams and Caroline Stewart.

Riders covered cx essentials such as dismounting, shouldering and remounting and how to effectively navigate through sand, over hurdles and down steep dropoffs.

LWR launch training day with over 100 riders

Working with our partner Huw Williams from British Cycling, we ran a LWR women’s only race-training session on 28th February at the Cyclopark in Gravesend, Kent. We’re thrilled that more than 100 women took park, receiving instruction from qualified British Cycling coaches under Huw’s expert supervision. A massive thank you also goes out to the experienced racers from Les FillesDrops Cycling Team and Matrix Pro Cycling who rode alongside the women to provide extra guidance.
