For those unfamiliar with road racing, the South East Road Racing League (SERRL) is a road racing series based in Kent and East Sussex and requires a British cycling licence, and membership of an affiliated club. Medway Velo is affiliated, although 4th catergory riders will need to attend two mandatory training days, more information on this is available on the SERRL website here.
Crits in the Park are a popular road racing series run at weekends on the closed road cyclopark circuit in Gravesend. They will return for 2017 and include races for men and women across a variety of categories.
The League of Veteran Racing Cyclists (LVRC) races are open to those riders of 40 years and above and requires an LVRC licence. It is not associated with British cycling.
Other road races run under the banner of British Cycling also happen in Kent, including some at Kent’s other closed road circuit at Betteshanger Sustainable Park, whilst during the summer club members also race in London at Crystal Palace, Hog Hill, Lee Valley or Hillingdon.
For those new to road racing Go races are sometimes held locally.
