Cyclo cross is cross country on a bike; it is a muddy, high adrenaline, winter sport involving lots of different terrains from grassy fields to tarmac.
Kids' courses are normally no longer than 500m. You can compete on any type of bike in this mud filled winter sport; gears or no gears! Good bike handling and fitness are needed to make you a champion.
Everyone starts en mass so it does make for some very good spectating. The winner is the rider who completes the most laps of the track in 10 minutes.
Riders range from 5 to 40+ years of age so everyone can get involved!
And not forgetting Cycle Derby CC, a club for children and young people.
