British Cycling will be bringing this year’s British National Road Championships to Redcar and Cleveland, with races being held in both Redcar and Saltburn.
The circuit race will take place on Friday 23rd June on a tight and technical 1km circuit around the picturesque seaside town of Redcar, with riders starting on the Esplanade before heading down the High Street. Both the men’s and women’s races will be contested over 55 minutes plus five laps.
Tees Valley Community Foundation are proud to be supporting local community groups across Redcar and Cleveland by staging community sporting and creative activity, from community balance bike sessions to arts workshops. A range of fun filled activity alongside the races will be available for all the family to enjoy.
Alongside the supermen and superwomen of cycling, we’ve also got a special one-off food market, The Spoke Market, where local food and drinks traders will be showing-off their wares into the evening. To really add to the festival feeling, we’ve also got local musicians from TunedIn! here to entertain the visitors, alongside festival faves Groove Inc.
Cycling enthusiast and nationally-renowned printer Dan Mather, a resident of Saltburn, will be on hand with his Pop-up Screen printing station, for its debut outing, where visitors will to make their very own limited edition print.
This exhilarating event is free to spectate with the women’s race taking place 6.30pm – 7.30pm closely followed by the men’s race 8 – 9pm.
There is ample space to get in on the race action! The route around Redcar Town Centre is short, sharp and promises excitement wherever you choose to watch.
To help us stay green and to reduce our carbon footprint we encourage visitors to use alternative, eco-friendly modes of transport when travelling to Redcar.
Public Transport – Travel sustainable and use public transport. Connect Tees Valley allows for quick and easy travel planning into Redcar.
Driving – Spectator parking will be well signposted at Seafield House and Majuba Road (all free after 6pm), approximately 5 – 10 minute walk from the start/finish line. We highly recommend parking in the above car parks as there are likely to be road and car park closures closer to the start/finish line.
Public Toilets – The public toilets on Moore Street will be open.
The National Cycling Championships showcases top class athletes, some of whom compete in the highest level of professional cycling (World Tour Level). Over the years the event has attracted Tour de France winners, Olympic and World Champion medallists such as Lizzie Deignan, Sir Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome, Mark Cavendish and Geraint Thomas who all battle it out to wear the national champions jersey.
