Lakes Road Club presents the Topmark Cycles Summer Classic 2019

We are proud to announce the second running of the Lakes Road Club summer road race, taking place on the 14th July 2019, this year sponsored by local bike shop Topmark Cycles, and known this year as the Topmark Cycles Summer Classic.

Many of you already know Topmark Cycles well, but please support our sponsor and local bike shop.  Visit Topmark Cycles website here.


Last years race was a great success with some great feedback from both riders and the British Cycling Race Officials, who really impressed with the signage and marshalls on the route.

So again this year we’re looking for your help!

We’ve already recruited a team of people who’ve generously agreed to give their time to help in the organisation of the event, but we need more help on the day!

Therefore, we’re looking for a team of marshals to help on race day.  In order to make the event as safe and as professional as possible we’re looking for as many marshals as possible – we need at least 25 for the event.

You’ll need to be at the Race HQ in Ulverston from 9:00am and will need to be in position until around 12:30pm (say 1:00pm at the latest) on Sunday 14th July.

Before the event you’ll be allocated a specific location, so you know where you will be and what you’ll be doing.

On the day you’ll be provided with a Hi Viz vest and signage / flags where required.

There will also be British Cycling Accredited Marshals in attendance at all major junctions, who are legally allowed to stop traffic and will be equipped with 2 way radios and be in contact with each other, the race HQ, Race Commissaires and the moto riders from the British Cycling National Escort Group.

Please help your club put on a top notch event and help promote cycling in your area by helping out on this event.  It promises to be a good morning’s racing and a good crack for everybody involved as well.

Club member and all round star Eamonn Quinn has again kindly taken on the position of Chief Marshal, so please can you email Eamonn if you’re prepared to help out at or reply to the post on the club’s Facebook page.

Thanks everyone and we look forward to hearing from you.
