The first ever Guernsey Velo Club Ladies Novice Race will take place on Sunday 24th Feb. This is a fun race for non Velo Club members who want to try road racing. There will be no GVC riders racing in this race, its all about the novices and giving Ladies a race experience and a taste of what road racing is like.
The race will take place on the Perelle Circuit, meeting at the L’eree hotel beach car park at 7.30am for an 8am start. The start and finish is by the shingle bank heading towards L’eree, turn left at L’eree Hotel and then left at Les Adams over the Felconte then left at the Grande Rue junction down to Perelle garage and then left along the coast to the start finish.
The course is only 2 miles long and the planned race distance is 6 laps. The course will be fully marshalled and timed so you’ll get lap times and race positions. There will also be several GVC members riding with you to help out and give advice, suggestions on tactics and general encouragement if you want it! They will however not be racing.
This is a free race, no race entry, open to non GVC members and no obligation to join the club afterwards. However if you would like to make a donation to the Pink Ladies as your race entry fee, please bring a minimum of £5 with you on the day. The only thing we need you to do is sign up online so we can do all the waivers and stuff and set up the timing before the race.
