Go-Ride is Bri­tish Cycling’s de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme for young peo­ple. It pro­vides a fun and safe way to in­tro­duce young rid­ers to the world of cy­cle sport and pro­vides a plat­form to im­prove bike han­dling skills. Young­sters can get in­volved ei­ther with a lo­cal Go-Ride Club or through a hol­i­day coach­ing pro­gramme where they get to sam­ple the var­i­ous cy­cle sport dis­ci­plines. The next step is Go-Ride Rac­ing, which helps young rid­ers make the tran­si­tion from school or club coach­ing ses­sions to in­ter-club and open re­gional com­pe­ti­tion. Th­ese events of­fer en­try-level lo­cal com­pe­ti­tion for young cy­clists un­der the age of 16. Bri­tish Cycling rac­ing li­cences are not re­quired and the events are aimed at novice rac­ing cy­clists. Visit www. british­cy­cling. org.uk/go-ride for more de­tails.
