Road racing is mass start racing, usually on roads but often (and for under 16s always) on closed circuits built for cycling or motor racing. A number of club members compete locally and nationally. Our nearest closed circuit is Darley Moor, South of Ashbourne, but there are a number of open road and closed circuit races across the region which can be found on the British Cycling website which has a calendar of road events both regionally and nationally. The club promotes events at Darley Moor. Matlock CC is an active club in the local road racing scene for adults and youth. and we promote races, run coaching sessions and have club training rides. In recent years we have had riders from fourth through to first category and a growing number of over 40s competing in veterans racing. New riders are always welcome whether they are strong experienced racers or newcomers to the sport. We promote youngsters racing through our circuit racing at Darley Moor alongside youth coaching sessions to give them the essential skills for racing.
