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.

PLANNED SPANISH STAGE RACE CANCELLED

 

Dear Riders,
Due to an unexpected low number of participants, we the organizers see ourselves forced to cancel the 3-day event. We sincerely apologize for the inconveniences this causes to those of you who have already committed themselves and were looking forward to the event as much as we did. We would, however, like to propose the alternative of a training camp that will take place on the same dates (23- 24 and 25 May). With logistic support we will ride the stages of the Masters Vuelta with flagged racing segments as well as an additional stage to one of the toughest mountain passes of Catalunya. Inscription fees will of course be refunded. There is no additional charge for the training camp. (unless we want to offer the Pyrenees stage)
 
We fully appreciate that some of you might be very disappointed that we are left without a proper race and for those that do not want to join the training camp and prefer to cancel, you are entitled to cancel the hotel without cancellation fee if you do so before Sunday 27 April 2014 and inscription fees will of course be refunded.
 
Those of you targeting major events in June can use this an ideal opportunity to do a mid-season camp to improve condition. Many pro teams do mid-season camps to prepare for the summer races!
 
Please contact me with your thoughts?
 
Once more our sincere apologies.
 
Kind regards,
 
Nick (co-organiser)
 
Wouter (co-organiser)
