If you've not wrapped your bike in it's summer protection, there is a race this weekend at Bethesda, North Wales
(http://map.gwynedd.gov.uk/DaearyddolMapGwefan/Map.aspx?iaith=en&canolfan_hamdden=Bethesda). It is the final of the Evolution Cycles North Wales League ( http://nwcycloxgroup.ning.com/). Usually a fun course with plenty of muddy off camber traversing. The course is set by the legendary Barry Davies. It all starts at noon on Sunday 19th February, with the kids race (my 5 year old will be lining up) with the adults starting around 12.20pm. Entry is £10 with no need for BC membership to bump up the entry cost. If you fancy a day out and a chance to race before the spring arrives, I'll see you there.
