Reccomended: Vuelta a’Fowlmead
Cats. 2/3 – 1hr. E/1/2/3 – 1hr.
Fowlmead Country Park, Off A258, Sholden, Deal, Kent, CT14 0BF
Organised by the very great PMR@Toachim House – one of those splendid women’s teams that works hard to promote the sport as well as going after race victories – the Vuelta is desperately in need of riders. Entry on the day is available, and while Fowlmead is a bit of a trek for many of us it’ll be worth the effort if it gets the entries it deserves.

Recommended: CC Sudbury Women’s Road Race
E/1/2/3/4
Long Melford Football Club, Stoneylands, New Road, Long Melford, Suffolk, CO10 9JY
A few weeks back, CC Sudbury were worried that they weren’t going to get enough riders to make this event viable – even though they were willing to run it at a loss, such was their determination to support women’s cycling. Then it was announced the WTS event on the same day had been cancelled, and with a little help from the Women’s Eastern Racing League and BC coach Huw Williams, all of a sudden there was so much interest in the Sudbury RR that the number of available places had to be increased to 60, all of which have been filled. So, what was going to be a fairly small event had become one of the biggest women’s races in East Anglia. There’s no way I’d miss this race, and you should come along too if you possibly can!

Fife Midweek Series #21 – Cleish Hillclimb
Dowhill House, Side Road, Off B9097, Cleish, KY4 0HZ
It’s hillclimb season again – and who doesn’t love spending a morning on some (usually damp and cold) ridiculous gradient to watch riders ripping their own legs off and pulling the sort of faces you usually only see in paintings by Hieronymus Bosch?
