Juniors

Our team of British Cycling qualified coaches run Go-Ride sessions virtually every week of the year from our junior coaching base in North Muskham, next to Newark on the A1. This takes place in the large village sports field, offering a safe, traffic free environment in with to coach.

Taking juniors from 6-16 years old, we provide a variety of competence and age appropriate coaching, within planned sessions incorporating bike skills, road skills, games and races – all with the aim to develop junior rider skills, ability and confidence on a bike.

We take pride in our club being open and inclusive. We do operate a code of conduct policy at the club, which all riders (seniors and juniors) and parents (observing / supporting coaching sessions) are expected to adhere to.
