You have until midnight on Sunday 10th February to get your entries in.

What is the Louisey Rider Cup?

The LRC celebrates the life of our teammate Louise Wright, aka Louisey Rider #66, who was sadly taken from us in a cycling accident in 2014. If you knew Louise you’ll immediately understand why a day of roller derby followed by a massive party is the best way to remember her, and if you didn’t you’ll experience a day that encapsulates Louise’s spirit.

You can read more about Louise in our members’ blog posts:

Louise’s Legacy

Spirit of the Afterparty

The last three years have raised a total of £11,000 for road safety charity Brake, and we’ll be supporting them again this year, so let’s get past that £15,000 milestone!

This event is family friendly so feel free to bring your little ones along.
