Go-Ride coaching

We’re coaching the next generation.

Our Saturday morning sessions run on Herringthorpe Playing Fields (S65 2HR - MAP) are suitable for under 16s, although we can take 12-15 year olds on club rides. Sessions are primarily aimed at under 12s who can ride a bike, be that a balance bike or pedal bike (without stabilisers).

Talent Development

Using the British Cycling talent development pathways we teach your children the fundamentals of cycling before coaching them on their favoured discipline. We do fun activities and games using cones, bean bags, tennis balls, limbo bars, ramps etc to enhance the cycling skills of your child and give them a good foundation for the future.

Our more advanced students are using BMX style pump tracks, taking on trail centers and we're looking this year how to get some road cycling done on quiet lanes.

Cost

Sessions cost £3 for non-members and £2 for club members. Book a place through Eventbrite using the button below. When booking, please let us know your child's name for the booking.

Under 12s membership is now an option at a discounted £10 for the year.

We'll also need you to fill in a parental consent form for each child and email it to [email protected], please.

Herringthorpe

We've now got a new - permenant - home on Herringthorpe Playing Fields. Please lookout for the SCC tent or flag.

Free off-street parking is available just off Middle Lane South towards the junction with Dryden Road To access the space we use, follow the tarmac/gravel path around the top-side of the athletics track.

Requirements

There’s no minimum age requirement for these sessions other than can your child follow instructions. Our youngest member is three years old. These aren’t sessions for teaching your child to ride a bike, but to enhance their skills and grow their confidence. If you're not sure, bring them along. We can provide advice and guidance no matter what their cycling ability.

They will need a bike with working brakes (if a pedal bike) and the bar ends need to be plugged. As well as a correctly fitting helmet.

Safeguarding

All coaches hold relevant qualifications and insurance through British Cycling. They are first aid trained, DBS checked and they've done safeguarding training.

We also have Club Welfare Officers and follow British Cycling's Safeguarding policies.
