Cyclo-cross is the winter sport of cross-country bike racing. Courses are typically in parks and other public open spaces, where competitors have to complete several laps of a circuit, often tackling obstacles that require them to dismount and carry their bikes for short distances.

Beacon members race in the West Midlands Cyclo-Cross League most weekends during the cross season and organise informal cyclocross-specific training sessions at different locations across south Birmingham.
