Cancelled Coaching Youth and Adult July 24th

Im sorry to say that due to very low numbers signing up and because the weather looks terrible tomorrow that we have decided to cancel the coaching sessions tomorrow.

Next coaching session will be August 14th and I will put in place a new booking system ahead of that.

Sorry for having to do this


Male & Female Cycle skills coaching trial session announced Sunday 24th July

Im really excited to announce a trial of our new Adult Skills training sessions.

Full details here

Our youth coaching has grown massively this year and whilst coaching the kids to take part in the Youth Skills competitions we run I thought “Why should the kids have all the fun!”

So its the Adults turn, Male and Female together learning how to handle their bike better.

Being able to handle your bike better benefits you as a rider by making you safer and more confident. If going fast is your thing then learning and practising how to handle the bike properly at lower speed benefits you when your going quick.

It dawned on me when a few adults tried our skills test courses that they were no better at them than the kids when they first tried them – come and give it a go and let us know what you think?
