Road Racing

Bournemouth Jubilee members will be entering a number of road and circuit races in the 2018 season. Here are some of the more local races we will be looking to compete in. We may well also look to travel further afield to race as well. Please contact Tom Stocker racesec@bjw.org.uk, the club’s road race secretary, if you are interested in racing this summer. We can look to coordinate our racing both in terms of possibly sharing travel and costs, and in terms of race tactics!
