The 2021 Calendar is now complete.  Championship points will be awarded for up to two-thirds (66%) of the races which you take part in. NOTE: this is 2/3 of races, not events, which you attend. Each event typically has two races (e.g. 30 mins and 45 mins) so there will be around 24-25 races each season, of which your best 16 will count for points. This is a change from the 'best 8 out of 12' system we've applied in previous years.

The first race is usually one hour after the opening time listed above, except where stated otherwise. Every race needs at least one Organisator plus Assistant and a qualified First Aider. Events with blank spaces in the table still need volunteers: please either post on the Forum or email compsec@bhpc.org.uk.

Click on the podium links in the race list for the current season's results. See the Results Index on the left for previous seasons.

BHPC race events are very friendly, informal affairs open to both BHPC members and non-members. We usually split the riders into two groups, one for slower riders (e.g. new riders, juniors, trikes, etc) and one for faster riders. Each group gets at least two races, usually a traditional road race of around 45 minutes plus a shorter event such as a time-trial or flying lap. The actual format is decided by the event Organiser depending on the track, the weather, personal whim, etc and is usually posted up on the BHPC Forum a few days ahead.

On the day: Non-members: £14
  Senior members: £9
  Junior members: £0
Annual prepay: Members only: £71

Annual race fees are not available for the 2020 season, due to the unpredictability of the calendar.
We are working on online sign-on, to avoid handling cash on race day for COVID-19 reasons.
