Minehead Merlins hosts the third round of the South West Cyclocross League on Sunday 16 September. The course is set on the Dunster polo grounds, with Dunster Castle providing a picturesque backdrop. The full course is approx. 3km in length. It is set on grass with a steep bank to the East providing a tough test for the competitors.
The racing kicks off as usual with the U8s at 10.30, through to the Junior/Senior/Women’s/Vets race at 13.30. The venue lends itself to good viewing for spectators, or the bank is a perfect place for a picnic (weather dependent!).
There is plenty of parking in the adjoining field and it is hoped there will be a selection of coffee/food vans, plus music. Once the racing is over, take the time to visit the beautiful village of Dunster and the Castle (National Trust) itself. Or take a trip on the steam train from nearby Minehead
