HSBC UK Go-Ride is British Cycling's development programme for young people.
The programme 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.
At Bourne Wheelers, British Cycling qualified coaches deliver coaching activities
in a traffic-free environment. Any type of bike can be used, so long as it is in good condition, and a cycling helmet must be worn.
The sessions teach the necessary skills to make riders more competent, safer cyclists. A competitive element is introduced gently and is not the main objective for the sessions, although it is an easy step from this to children’s races of which there are many in the area such as grass track and cyclo-cross.
The Go-Ride programme promotes good health and includes fun activities that are easy to learn. Skills include balance and coordination, braking and control, use of gears and cornering.
So come along to the first session later in the Spring, on a Monday
evening, 6-7pm at the Recreation Ground on Recreation Road in Bourne.
The sessions continue weekly until mid-September.
