    Story

    The Otley Cycle Races are returning in 2021. After being cancelled in 2020 we've worked hard with British Cycling, the Police and Otley Town Council to get this event on again this year.

    We are desperately keen to make the races happen again because of the devastating effect the pandemic has had on all our young people, cyclists included. We've now lost almost two seasons which is likely to have a pretty damaging effect on the career prospects for young bike riders. Making events like this happen create opportunity for them to show themselves and it also demonstrates that there is hope that things will get back to normal for everybody.

    Because the Government has delayed the lifting of all restrictions we will have to proceed under some restrictions. The main one is that we have to limit the number of spectators to 4000. We know many of you will be disappointed by this as it's usually one of the highlights of the summer.

    But, we don't want you to miss out. We have already raised money to help film and televise the event. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far.

    The livestream will be here https://dreambikegiveaway.uk

    If you'd like to donate too, then any additional funds we can raise will help cover all the other additional cost's we've had to suffer this year. You can help by perhaps putting in the petrol money you'll be saving! We think it might be worth say £5 to watch the races on telly, but anything you can give, even if it's only a small amount, will add up very quickly and will help us make this happen in future years

    And, to make it more exciting we're going to run a raffle alongside the fund raising page. We will select at random one of you who have donated and send you a signed jersey from Ineos Grenadier rider - Tom Pidcock.

    Tom said to us "Otley is such a great event, it disappoints me that it can't proceed with the normal amazing crowds but I want to help where I can to help get it telivised"

    We hope you can help us.

      Thank you to everybody who donated, supported, watched, helped, road, officiated or viewed via the livestream. It was a cracking event and felt so good to get back to closed circuit bike racing.
