As well as learning in our Juniors sessions, some of our riders are riding in Go Ride sessions on the Velodrome and the BMX Centre in Manchester

Junior Sessions

Sessions start with a bike, helmet and clothing check followed by a warm up.

The session will include  fun activities of about 20 minutes duration each. Riders will be coached in bike handling skills, which will develop all aspects of bike riding, in a safe traffic-free environment.

Sessions will finish with age-related and supervised challenges (e.g. races or relays) plus finally, a warm down.

All activities will be monitored by the fully trained volunteer coaches who are all fully CRB checked and accredited by British Cycling.
