Racing at Richard Dunn 21st May and Mountain Bike racing at Pensitone Counrty park, Howarth Sunday 25th May

Circuit race at Richard Dunn

Tonight the White Rose Youth league is again running circuit racing for Under8/10, Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16. Races start at 7 and signing on will start approx 6 pm. The usual BC gear restrictions will apply.

Mountain Bike Competition

The Yorkshire MTB competition is this Sunday 25th May at Penistone Hill Country Park near Howarth.

We need volunteers to help marshal the event and to help with signing on, particularly for the older races so if you can help, we would really appreciate it as without more help, these events won't run. They are all run by volunteers for the benefit of the children so the more helpers, the easier it is for those who put the events on.

Attached are the list of pre-entries, if you have entered but don't see your name, please let Mandy know. You can enter on the day but signing on closes 30 minutes before each race.

Also attached is the information leaflet.

Accommodation for the Tour De France

The local cricket club is offering camping to members of EBCC for a maximum of 30 tents on the Saturday night at their cricket grounds on the Saturday night at Penistone Hill, near Howarth where we run the MTB BSCA race as the Tour is passing along the road at the bottom of the entrance road. The coast is £10 per tent.  They will also put a BBQ on the Saturday for which there will be a small cost. You can also bike across the moor to view the race on one of the big climbs just outside of Howarth or to the Howarth Hub.This is one of the most scenic of places to be.

If you are interested, please e-mail mandy on

Great turnout for EBCC topped off with a Southby win

A grest show of EBCC young riders with 18 taking part at the first Round of the White Rose Youth League was topped off by George Southby taking the win in the Under 12s. Ten of our riders comprised of over half the field in the Under 22s. A record I think for EBCC.
