  • The event will take place in Rouken Glen Park in the ‘High Meadows’ part of the park, south west corner, west of the burn.
  • This years event will host three races. Two open men’s races and one open women’s race both open to persons 16 years and over – the relevant age is as you come on the 28th of November 2020.
  • For the open men’s races, you can choose either the Open A or the Open B race. Generally we would recommend if you typically finish in the top half of an age-group race consider the Open A.

RGCX is being run under British Cycling Regulations and you therefore require a British Cycling Race License.  If you do not currently have a Race License through your membership you will be required to purchase a Day License at £3. We will be emailing all riders that will require a Day License to gather payment either before the day of the race or bring the exact change with them on race day to pay for a Day License. We will not be issuing any race numbers or chips to riders without a race/day license.

Any questions please feel free to drop Jim Cameron an email at jim@albannach.cc
