EWCC is affiliated to the South West Cyclo-Cross league.
Cyclo-Cross (CX) is a mix between mountain biking and road racing. It requires stamina and good bike handling skills. It is raced on fields and involves obstacles such as steep banks or wooden boards which require the rider to dismount and carry his/her bike. The races are less than an hour and considerably shorter for youths.
We participate at and organise CX races actively during the autumn and winter season for both kids and adults, e.g. our annual round of the South West Cyclocross league in the picturesque setting of Escot park near Ottery St Mary in Devon, and Go-Ride events.
Our CX events will be announced on the British Cycling website.
Do I need a Cyclo-Cross bike to race? No, although the serious riders will have one, many riders will race on a mountain bike. You can turn up on any old mountain bike and still compete – so anyone can give it a go!
