We have set ourselves some stretching targets in 2017, but all these are geared towards creating a solid platform for a sustainable Junior & Youth section that will provide fun and safe cycling experiences for as many youngsters across the Vale of Belvoir.

These milestones include, turning club volunteers into British Cycling qualified coaches, delivering regular safe environment fun coaching sessions for children of all ages. Our target of achieving the British Cycling accolade of ‘Go Ride’ status, the opportunity to introduce our future club riders to indoor track cluster sessions, finishing the year with a representation across the NDCXL (Notts & Derby Cyclo-cross League) where the youth section can race safely, on grass, against their East Midlands peers.

Without saying, all of this will be contained within our Welfare Officer monitored eco-system, where the youngsters will be necessarily protected.
