HOUGHTON Cycling Club are embarking on a series of circuit races at the Hetton Lyons Country Park cycle circuit.
The initial series will take place on the Saturday afternoons of March 17, 24 and 31.
This is a new initiative by the Houghton club to encourage more people to take part in cycle sport.
If it’s successful, additional events will be added later in the year.
The use of the Hetton Lyons circuit has the advantage of being traffic-free and therefore suitable for all age ranges.
The initial series will cater for ages from 12 years upwards.
The club is also looking at other closed circuits that may be suitable for cycle racing to extend further the options of cyclists in the region.
