League events are divided into separate races for boys and girls, and split according to wheel size.
All riders normally use the League’s Islabike Beinn bikes, with either 26” or 24” wheels.
The exact number of races in each event depends on the number of schools participating, and the time available. There will be usually be at least four race categories:
Children are allocated their bike wheel size at the start of each event, according to height. It is vital that riders do not use different sizes during the various heats and finals in an event.
In each individual race:
First across the line gets 10 points, next rider 9 points etc… All riders who finish a race get at least 1 point, no matter their position.
For the season:
Each school’s best scores are combined to give a total for the League table.
How many scores are included in the final standings depends on how many events are held:
6-7 events: top 5 scores used
5 events: top 4 results used
4 events: top 3 results used
The winning school is awarded the Haringey Schools Cycling League Trophy at the season finale at the end of the summer term.
