The club is at the centre of the current revival in popularity of the winter cyclo-cross discipline and is, in fact, one of the most accessible forms of cycle sport, with racing categories from under 12 to over 50 and everything from regional leagues in local parks to national and international events. Events typically last for an hour for senior riders, and shorter for other categories, and are run off over short laps on a variety of courses featuring wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles that require the rider to dismount and carry or push the bike.
Although cyclo-cross is a demanding discipline and used by many cyclists to maintain fitness over winter racing seldom sees large bunches forming due to the nature of the terrain, with groups of two or three riders forming at the most. Cyclo-cross is often a personal battle between the rider and the course, making it engaging for riders of all abilities.
