Still Time to Enter Unique Cyclo Cross Event!

The event is held in Blists Hill Victorian Town in Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge. The museum has teamed up with the organisers of Newport’s popular Nocturne cycle race to host an exciting urban cyclo-cross event. Taking place on Saturday evening, 28th June, 6pm-9pm, the exciting Queen Victoria Cyclo-Cross has already attracted many of the UK’s top riders.

The Victorian Town will present unusual and formidable challenges as the cyclists ride modern bikes through the recreated Victorian streets. Between watching the races, spectators will be able to wander around the Town and explore the industrial monuments and land marks of the 52-acre site.

The inaugural event in 2013 was a huge success, described in Cycling Weekly magazine as “Britain’s Craziest Bike Race! For this year the unique course has been improved whilst retaining the fearsome Hay Inclined Plane.

The event will start at 6pm; spectators are welcome for just £3, payable at the gate; children under 16 will be free of charge and must be accompanied by an adult. Ironbridge Gorge Museum Passports are not valid for this evening and dogs will not be allowed.
