About the race
The Summer Soggy Series is all about having fun on bikes with friends. Yes, it's a race, but for most, it's a chance to enjoy some of the best tracks Newnham has to offer without so much of the climbing.
To give this series a different feel to the Winter events, we move the arena to to top of Newnham Park (see map).
From here we can access the woodland singletrack without having to send you up a killer climb first.
Racing takes place on a 3km (ish loop) which will be suitable for all levels of mountain biker, and each round will use a different loop. We're also able to allow cyclocross bikes, which will add a new dimension to the fun.
The courses will include fun and exciting singletrack, but will not have you needing to get your wheels in the air, or your backside miles off the back of the saddle.
Our aim with the Summer Series is to create events that attract new riders into the sport at the same time as giving experienced riders the opportunity to stretch their legs and enjoy being on their bikes.

Lap timing + dodgy commentary
There won't be any catering, so bring a picnic or a BBQ.
There is a tap, but it's not always working well, so bring your own water if possible
