No! Although the Lakes Road Club has a fine racing heritage, we are not purely a racing club. Many of our members have never raced, whilst others have a racing background but are now content to take things at a slower pace. What you will find in the Lakes is a huge depth of cycling experience going back over many years. However, the club does promote races, which rely heavily on volunteers, and members are expected to assist in whatever way they can, either by marshalling or by helping out at the HQ. Some members even eventually volunteer to take over the organising of events!
