BHPC race events are very friendly, informal affairs open to both BHPC members and non-members. We usually split the riders into two groups, one for slower riders (e.g. new riders, juniors, trikes, etc) and one for faster riders. Each group gets at least two races, usually a traditional road race of around 45 minutes plus a shorter event such as a time-trial or flying lap. The actual format is decided by the event Organiser depending on the track, the weather, personal whim, etc and is usually posted up on the BHPC Forum a few days ahead.
