  • Next edition of the drag sprints coming up now that British Summer Time is almost with us. I've given two dates (Thursday 21st April/Friday 5th May) just in case the weather for the first date proves unforgiving.

    Same idea as past editions, people turn up on fixed wheel bikes, put down a qualifying time and the leading times go through for some head to head racing.

    This is definitely a social event, albeit with a winner at the end so feel free to bring along friends - just be respectful of other people and the space. Bring along yourself, some lights, some beverages, warm clothes (summer ain't with us yet) and maybe a cow bell or two...

    Event will be happening on the Green Way as per earlier events with a feeder ride from Royal Inn on the Park for those not familiar with the location.

    Map of location

    Video from an earlier edition http://www.vimeo.com/6330776

    For those not so familiar with the location, plan is to leave from Royal Inn on the Park at 7pm and start racing around 7:30pm although your more than welcome to head straight on down.

    Directions from Royal Inn on the Park (aka the old East Drinks). Head north along Lauriston Road and across the roundabout and then along Terrace Road

    From there, blast along Cassland Road till you reach the junction with Wick Road.

    Head along Wick Road till you reach a junction where you have the option of turning right up Cadogan Terrace

    From there it's simply a case of riding along till you have the Big Yellow Self Storage space in sight (look out for the tall chimney).

    Before you reach the Big Yellow Self Storage space, there'll be a turn off to the Greenway on the right
