Go-Ride integrates club development, coaching activities, youth participation and talent identification programmes for young people into one single programme, which supports the creation of a network of school and community based cycling clubs that are trained, resourced and skilled to meet the challenge of integrating young people into a recognised club structure. Go-Ride facilitates the delivery of school and community based cycling opportunities for young people and the development of local partnerships with a shared vision of more young people, more active, more often in cycling. The success of Go-Ride is dependent upon a partnership between British Cycling, clubs, schools, local authorities, voluntary organisations and commercial operators.
Who is it for?
Go-Ride coaching activities have been designed to introduce young people to a range of cycling disciplines such as mountain biking, BMX and Track Riding. So whatever your age or ability you will have a great time. All of the activities can be adapted to make them easier or harder, so whether you are a beginner or an expert, Go-Ride promises to be fun, exciting and challenging for everyone involved. Go-Ride includes a programme of fun coaching activities delivered in a safe environment. Go-Ride Gears 1 and 2 teach generic bike handling skills to 6-12 year old children using a variety of fun games and activities, delivered at a traffic free facility. Gears 1 and 2 culminate in a skills test. Go-Ride Gears 3 and 4 focus on 12-18 year old riders participating in multi-disciplinary cycling skills sessions through to discipline specific coaching delivered at discipline specific facilities.
