Welcome to Frog Bikes Short Circuit presented by Cranked Cycle Club.  An event that’s all about taking part, and even more about having fun on your bike.

Across the day there is a programme of ‘races’ for kids – seeing how many laps they can do, or just going that wee bit faster. Every child will get a pro-style number board, and will also receive a medal.

Aside from all the fun riding on the race courses you will also have the chance to chat to the Frog Bikes team about all things bike and even try out some of their award-winning bikes for yourself.

The riding is all on bike specific trails and forest roads.

This is a pairs relay race event, with each rider taking turns to complete one lap with the aim to complete as many laps as possible within the allocated time.
