British Cycling – Accredited Marshals

The first regional Road Race in County Durham for 20 years takes place on Saturday 4th August 2018 near Barnard Castle. This will also be the first event in the North East to use Accredited Marshals to control traffic. We urgently need to train 10 Accredited Marshals for this first event.

The North East AMS course is on Monday 16th July at 6:00pm at the Chester-le-Street, Riverside Leisure Complex, DH3 3SJ.

Enrolment is via the British Cycling website. The course is free, and is a combination of online learning and one evening of practical training. (Enrolment closes Thursday 12th July.). Free British Cycling Bronze membership is available to non-BC members.

60% of road races across England now use Accredited Marshals who have been trained to use the “Stop! Cycle Race” sign, to legally stop and hold traffic, making road races safer for everyone involved; riders, the race convoy and other road users. Come and be part of the team securing the future of Road Racing in the North East.

East Cleveland Klondike Grand Prix – Sunday 2 April 2017

The East Cleveland Klondike Grand Prix, which takes place on Sunday 2 April 2017, has the potential to become a very important date on the professional cycle racing calendar in the UK.

Our race is particularly challenging and hence is has been moved to the front of the race list. It is part of the HSBC Business Spring Elite Series & we have managed to make this race the qualifier for the Tour de Yorkshire.

The Klondike is endorsed and run through British Cycling. The race is for professional riders and we hope to be welcoming 120 – 140 professional riders and their teams.
