Rhos-on-Sea Cycling Club invites NWCX to Coleg Llandrillo, a thriving college campus featuring state-of-the-art buildings, rolling grassland, superb sporting facilities and unlimited Sunday car parking.
Competitors can expect a “Rhos Rough Ride” with fast flowing sweeps and some adventurous banking and cambers. The course will weave through Wiggly Wood where organisers prepare sections of single track.
This is never an easy course. Traversing steep banks requires continuous attention.
Male & Female WCs are located near the canteen complex. Please treat all facilities with respect.

Parents: children enjoy cyclocross. If unsure don’t be afraid to ask at HQ. This series prioritises racing for children and newcomers. Most beginners make rapid progress.
Single frameset rule: NWCX operates a single frameset rule. You must use the bike you start with. No spare bikes permitted once race underway.
