Do as few or as many as you want! Race your mates, have some fun, and you may even accrue some points towards a Club Championship.
The Series has been designed to cater for all levels, ages and disciplines of road cycling – so there is definitely something for everyone.
The events are open to all ACC members.

What’s it all about?

The Alpine Cycling Club Summer Road Series is intended to give ACC cyclists the opportunity to –
– Have fun
– Get fit
– Meet new people

All through a variety of road race events.

What’s involved?

These events cater for all levels of fitness and all road disciplines.

At each event riders can accumulate points which contribute to the ACC male and female club champion honour.

Each event can be entered separately, so there is no requirement to sign up for the whole series.

When does it run?

The series kicked off in November and concludes mid-April with the club championships and awards presentation and celebration. But don’t stress if you have missed any – there is plenty of racing to be done all summer long!
