Road Racing

Club members are usually active in various Road Race competitions throughout the season, which are promoted under the regulations of several different bodies on a mixture of Closed Circuits and Open Road courses.

 British Cycling (BC) – The figure head organization of cycling in UK, which has achieved tremendous success in the last 10 years at Elite level in the Olympics and World Championships. Good web site with full event details, you need to take out an annual licence and enter events in advance although many events take entries on the line.

Beginners start as 4th Category and by accumulating points can work up to 1st category.

Witham Wheelers promotes 2 road races every year under BC regulations and Open Circuit races at RAF Barkston Heath.

 League of Veteran Racing Cyclists (LVRC) – For all riders over 40 with races organized in age categories to encourage people coming into the sport late in life or making a comeback in middle age.

 The League International (TLI) – For all ages to give a low cost alternative to BC events. The Lincolnshire Handicap Road Race league is promoted under TLI regulations, comprising an event every other Wednesday by clubs (including the Witham Wheelers) throughout Lincolnshire in the summer.
