Herne Hill Youth CC offers the opportunity for young riders (10+) to join Club rides outside the Herne Hill Velodrome.
These rides are designed to provide a progression for riders from young beginners to adult riders.
The rides usually start at the Velodrome. Some rides for 10-12 year olds start close to the entrance of off-road sections, to avoid cycling on long stretches of road. If you are interested in joining a ride for the first time, ask a coach who will assess if you have the level required to enjoy yourself. Previous attendance of a Bikeability course is recommended.
What to bring on a ride out:
- emergency contact name and phone number, written on piece of paper for ease of access in the event of an emergency
- water and snacks
- spare inner tube suited to your bike
Emergency contacts must be available to pick up their riders on the route if needed.
It is important to note that these rides are not coached, and they may be led by people deemed competent, but not necessarily trained by British Cycling.
