Welcome to the LVRC Website
The League of Veteran Racing Cyclists provides racing for cyclists who are veterans. To be eligible to join you must be 40 years of age or more; the League is open equally to male and female bike racers. Don't worry if you think you aren't fit enough to race - in the LVRC you are always allowed (encouraged, in fact) to compete in an older age group than your calendar age indicates. The only exception to this is National Championship and Percy Stallard Series races. This is deliberately designed to help people get back into racing, and move up the groups as fitness starts to return.

Notice to the LVRC Membership – Abuse of Organisers will not be tolerated
The LVRC National Exec Committee has been made aware of a recent case of unacceptable abuse of an organiser. This was from a relatively new member of the LVRC who does not appear anywhere amongst our race organisers or officials.
The LVRC National Exec would like to make clear the following:
The LVRC is an organisation totally reliant on individual members giving their time and effort to provide a national program of events. The key individuals in this are without doubt race organisers, without them we would cease to exist. We are therefore very protective of these individuals, they step up to the plate to organise our races, and we expect that they will be given the respect they deserve. Critics of race organisation are almost invariably from individuals who have never been prepared to volunteer themselves.
The LVRC prides itself on having limited rules and regulations. This is because as an organisation for the 40+ age group it is anticipated that our members conduct themselves with balance and maturity. As a result of this we have no disciplinary procedures and have no wish to introduce them. However, we do have choice as to who we accept as members.
The National Executive is unanimous in stating that we will not tolerate abuse of organisers or LVRC officials. People who behave in this manner are not welcome in the LVRC they will be denied membership if such behavior continues.
Your NEC 2nd August 2013.
On Line Entry System. We intend to have 10 events this year using RiderHQ as an online race entry system. This includes the Crit Championships and ABCD RR Championships. We encourage all members to enter these races via this system. We are working towards a wider roll out in 2014 for all organisers who wish to use it.
