LCCA

This is the website of the London Cyclo Cross Association (LCCA) which covers the south east area of England. Races and events are held in London, Surrey, Sussex and Kent.

For many years the LCCA and like so many other associations, has spent most of their time on their league events, but in modern times the growth of cyclo cross has meant that we now have to look beyond this one league and reflect the other events held under the auspices of the LCCA in our area.

Nonetheless the London and South East League remains our major focus. Go to the homepage for links to London Summer Cross, East Kent CX League and of course the London and South East League – Go there

What is the London South East Cyclo Cross League?

The CycleFit  London Cyclo-Cross League is run by the London Cyclo-Cross Association (LC-CA) and covers an area that includes London and the South East down to the coast..

We thank our new sponsor – Cyclefit

The season long event is based on:

Seniors/Women/Veterans/Vet 50+
Junior/Youth/Under 12/Under 10

Best 8 rounds to count. 50% rounded up to the whole number above, so that there cannot be two winners who have never met. If we lose a round for any reason  it will be down to best 7

How do I join?

In order to enter any London & SE League event you will first need to register as a member of LCCA (not required for U10 and U12 riders).

Mempership costs £10 and covers the cost of your race number and timing chip, which you must keep for the whole season (Replacements require re-registration). This charge pays for providing the electronic timing system, and pays for upgrades to this system.
Riders who are members of promoting clubs will receive a £3 refund.

There is no requirement for riders or clubs to affiliate separately as in previous years.

After 1st Dec the membership fee falls to £5 (and 1.50 refund).

Riders are strongly advised to enter in advance via RiderHQ.com, which will help you by minimising queuing time at event sign on, and also helps the chip timing team to generate event results more quickly.  We will still accept Entry ‘on the day’ at each venue, for an additional charge.

Please note that race entry for all cross events are subject to a £3 levy if you are not a member of British Cycling.

On-Line entry uses Rider HQ

Under 10s and Under 12s are ONLY eligible to enter events and sign on ‘on the day’ at each venue. The online process is not available for these categories

To enter an LCCA event and pay on line, use the following link.

If you are entering an LCCA event for the first time you will be asked to register with LCCA and pay a £10 registration fee. The registration fee assigns the rider a race number and an electronic tag, which riders should collect at the venue and which they keep for the series.

What’s Cyclo-cross?

One hour (30 minutes for youth and 15 and 10 minutes for under 12 and 10’s) of all out effort held over a course with variety of terrain to test your lungs and bike handling skills.

What many people comment upon is the good natured atmosphere that cyclo cross events are held in.
