(Premier Cycling Event on the Yorkshire coast)
(Race Circuit closed on Sunday 4th from 8am to 7pm - car park available £2 per car)
Subject to restrictions for Covid-19, we have registered the road events in the anticipation that we will be able to go ahead. We will open road events entries but not accept them until the closing date so that we do not take any money until we are certain the event will run.
This includes camping fees. We need sufficient entries in the main events to have enough finances to run it so please enter early.
Should it be cancelled due to coronavirus, full refunds will be made.
NEW EVENTS added for Saturday 3rd July - Go Mountain Eliminators - see PROGRAMME page for link to full details
The Festival has been in existence for the last 10 years after a gap of 20 years. The location of the circuit overlooks the seaside town of Scarborough and is famous for the motorcycle road races that have been promoted there since the 50's. We benefit from the use of a "quiet" day to offset the noise of the motorcycle days. Unless you have ridden the full circuit, it is hard to describe but is unlike anything else used for Youth and Junior races, hence the shorter times for races. It is however, not for the faint hearted as the first edition proved. It remains though, a true hard circuit to test the future stars of cycle racing for another year. Are you ready for it again? 2021 will see the second event as an organiser for Joe Parker,following on from the very successful National Championships in 2019. We are running a round of the National Youth Series, a 2, 3, 4 Adult Race plus a standalone U12 race. Timing chips will be used again this year.
Don't forget the Hill Climb during the afternoon break and the extra time for the afternoon racers to try the circuit. We are also looking at another supporting event hopefully with the local cycle clubs. As usual, the event field can be booked for Tents, Motorhomes and Caravans via this website - Noon Friday 2nd to Noon Monday 5th. Keep checking back here and on our Facebook page.
Hope to see you all soon!

The Scarborough Cycling Festival weekend is packed with events to suit all, including community and families. There are closed circuit road and cyclo cross racing and a "come and try" Hill Climb event. The venue is the Olivers Mount circuit YO11 2UG.
Camping site for caravans, tents and motorhomes is available at Olivers Mount throughout the Festival from Noon Friday 2nd July.
*N.B.* Booking a camping pitch is via the British Cycling website with the race entry system. You can still book without entering a race but you will need to register on the website in order to do so, if you're not already a member.
HELP REQUIRED PLEASE! - If anyone can volunteer a couple of hours to marshal the road races whilst gaining an up-close view of the action on Sunday please make yourself known to the organisers. Indeed, any help is appreciated for any event. THANK YOU.
The circuit will be closed to traffic
from 8am to 7pm Sunday. Car parking is £2 on Sunday in the field.
