child taking part in the coached sessions. You understand and agree that they participate under instruction by
British Cycling (BC) coaches entirely at their own risk. You have considered the nature of the sessions and have
discussed it with them. You are satisfied that they are sufficiently responsible and competent to assume full
responsibility for their own safety under the supervision of a BC coach.

Welfare Officers


We have two Club Welfare Officers whose mandate is to maintain British Cycling's high standards in relation to children participating in cycling; allowing peace of mind for participants, their families and cycling clubs by ensuring those working with young people are suitable to do so.   

If you have any concern at all about any aspect of any activity or individual at the club, please email
