On August Bank Holiday 2016 we supported the amazing, first-ever, Ouseburn Cyclocross, a 1.25 mile circuit through streets, wooded footpaths, parkland and cobbled climbs under our three iconic bridges.

route of Ouseburn Valley CrossWith beautiful sunshine it was a stunning day to both watch and take part in the eight races (with 8 categories including novice and under 12s). There was also the opportunity for complete beginners to try the course between races. Stalls and plenty of food and drink were available, so it was a great day out!  See photos and feedback on Ouseburn Cross on Twitter  and  Facebook and the full report on the day can be read here.

The planning group is already working on the 2017 event -  put the date in your diary now to come along on Monday 28 August 2017. More details will be added here soon, and you will be able to register for the races at www.britishcycling.org.uk from Spring 2017
