UPDATE: Rose Bikes Cliff Race Cancelled at Aberystwyth due to Severe Weather Warnings.
This just in from Si Paton:
Aberystwyth was battered last night by severe gales that are continuing today and predicted throughout the weekend. We were parked up on the seafront last night and our vehicles have been damaged due to high winds that have blown the pebbles from the shore onto the seafront!
Therefore we have had to cancel the event as we are unable to guarantee rider and spectator safety on the finish straight and on the hill itself.
You can now enter the Halo BDS end of season bash, the Rose Bikes Cliff Hanger race at Constitution Hill, Aberystwyth, Wales on the day. Just rock up, pay your money then race and party.
The race is this weekend 13th/14th November and promises to be a great way to end the season, I mean just look at the uplift…it’s a sweet tram…class.
