About the club

  •  Vision

Our vision is to promote youth cycling at all levels and abilities to allow children to enjoy the sport of cycling and promote self-confidence and mutual respect.

  • History

The club was started in 2005 to allow children to have their own youth-only club and sessions, as senior clubs were not receptive to meeting the needs of young riders.

  • Ages

Membership is available from 10-18.
