Following a successful presentation to the club committee by Nick Yarworth of
British Cycling recently, the club has decided to look at developing a junior /
youth section, under the guidelines of BC's Go-Ride Clubmark which confirms a
kitemark standard for junior / youth activities.
British Cycling will be setting up courses in local schools
and the club will shadow these activities with a view to taking over their
delivery later in the year.
This promises to be a great opportunity for the club to sustain and develop its
junior membership. To get things rolling Roger Towe, Kelvin southan, Colin
Whitford and others are all on their way to becoming qualified coaches, with
John Gabriel and Paul Sidwell already there.
It is early days but we would like to hear from anyone who is interested in
getting involved in this project either as a coach, volunteer, welfare office or
administrator. Please contact
Elspeth Brimley by email or
on 024 76384770.
