Sessions start at 6:30pm and run till approx 7:30pm . Sessions cost £2 per child
Sessons usually take place every Monday night (heavy rain will usually cancel the event)
All that is needed to take part is a working bike (of any kind) , a helmet and loads of enthusiasm
Sessions will see kids develop the skills to take part in cycle racing, advice on how to get involved in the sport will be given and the kids will also take part in fun racing and activities to build confidence
We appreciate that kids grow fast and its hard to keep up with the cost of normal clothing, never mind cycle clothing for the kids.
So heres how we make things easier for those looking for club kit for kids, we call it "grow with the club"
The club would appreciate the return of any unwanted jerseys to help keep this scheme running
Kids love to compete , and there is no better way to get involved in cycle sport than by taking part in one of our Go-Ride Racing events.
Run in a safe , off road facilty , kids get to taste events aimed at all abilities that will test their skills while giving them a great time aswell.
Those wishing to take their racing to the next level can become involved in regional level cyclo-cross and mountain bike racing under our guidance , a great way to get involved in this fun sport and get mucky in the process
Supported by British Cycling , and run by their qualified coaches , our holiday sessions will be two day sessions run in the local school holidays , these will be extended skills development sessions with a capital F for fun !
sessions run from 10am till 2pm , and cost around £10.00 per day to cover insurance costs (compare this to the equivalent of 4 hours child care anywhere else). Bike and helmet hire is available on pre-booking
Our Clubs Holiday Coaching sessions take place at Oxcroft miners welfare and will take place on dates announced here - we recommend that you pre-book with the coach, Dean Hughes to avoid dissapointement
