The Cheltenham handicap race is to be held the week after Labour weekend. Last year the race was shifted to a new course as there was major roadworks occurring on the previously used course for this event. The new courses started and finished at the Chelty Hotel in Cheltenham – an appropriate place for the name of the event.
This year to make the event special we are adding a recreational grade. This is for all those people that want to have a go but do not want to race as such. At the end of the event John Arbuckle is putting up a dozen Tuis as a prize for the first recreational rider home. And for those who want a beer before they head out on the course the bar will be open. Of course the bar will be open again at the end of the race.
Registration is at the Chelty Hotel at 1pm. First grade off will be the recreational grade at 1.30pm. There is a shorter distance for junior riders. Have a look at the website calendar for more details.
