VSCC Prescott Bicycle Races and 5th Annual Pedal-Car Grand Prix – Sunday 7 August

Wednesday 27 July 2016

The highlight of the year for so many of the Club’s younger (and older!) Members, Sunday’s activities at VSCC Prescott get underway with the traditional and ever-popular Bicycle Races, which will take place at approximately 9.00am.
Long-time Club Member, Simon Diffey of Merry Printers has once again kindly sponsored the event – having been introduced to the annual VSCC Boulogne Bicycle Raid with his brother, James 30 years ago – and there will be the usual prizes for this year’s race winners, with sweets and drinks for all participants.

There will be races for the Under 10s, Under 16s and an All-Comers event depending on demand – weird and wonderful cycling machinery is encouraged!  Don’t forget there is also the Children’s Pedal Car Grand Prix (for Children Under 16) which is strictly restricted to pedal power only (no motorised or battery powered cars). 

Those wishing to take part should assemble from 8.30am with any type of bicycle (or pedal car) in the Paddock adjacent to the Start Line for Signing-on and ‘Scrutineering’ (don’t forget to bring a helmet and a parent/guardian for any Under 18s). 

If you do not have a bicycle with you, do come along early to watch; you are sure to see some wonderful machinery, from Penny Farthings to tandems to unicycles!

Please support the Bike Races this year! They are great fun and you can have fun practising before the event in the campsite, but please, no bicycles in the Paddock or on the Hill Climb course other than before assembling for Sunday’s races.
