Mountain Biking and
We run two sessions every Saturday where we coach kids from 6 to 18 years old in mountain biking and cyclocross.
Click here to enter a session - entries open on Thursdays, 9 days in advance of each session, and currently fill up quickly.
If you're coming for the first time, please join the Beginner and Improver session so we can assess your skills.
Please can riders and parents from the earlier session try to disperse by 11.00 so that the riders in the second session can start arriving after 11.00.
If possible, we ask that only one parent brings their children to the velodrome.
We are following British Cycling’s guidelines on group sizes for coached sessions. Please note that these may change at short notice. We are currently limited to a maximum group of 30 people, including coaches and helpers, so we now need everyone to book in advance.
The sessions are pretty energetic so don’t skip breakfast, and bring a bottle of water.
Be in time for registration, helmet and bike checks – arrive 10 minutes before the session.
Ensure your bike is in safe working order and wear a helmet that fits.
No special clothing is required for sessions, but please wear gloves.
Save £2 per session.
