We are keen to grow our youth section and are running an induction programme to prepare new riders. There will be the opportunity to race at the end of the course.
Our coaches have an enormous wealth of cycling experience, both on the track (velodrome) and road. Some of our previous youth members have gone on to professional careers, ridden at the Commonwealth Games and even become six-times world champion!
Young people aged 10 – 15 years. A racing bike is not essential, but you will need a bike with gears and a helmet to wear.
