Saturday Afternoon Junior Club - important announcement

It with regret that we have to inform you that we are closing our Saturday afternoon club with immediate effect. We have taken this difficult decision because we simply do not have enough volunteer coaches to keep it running. 

The options for our young riders who were hoping to be in the Saturday afternoon club for this school year are:
  • some Saturday afternoon riders will anyway be moving to our Youth section, as they are starting secondary school.
  • for others you may transfer and join the Saturday morning club coaching sessions (10am to 12noon), you will be given priority over any new recruits for that club section. If this is of interest please contact Adam in the next 3 weeks on to find out more.

We appreciate that for some it will not be possible to move to club sessions on a Saturday morning. These riders can become an Affiliate Members. This membership is aimed at those who can not attend coaching sessions. It is free of charge, and although there is no access to regular coaching sessions it enables you to participate in any other activities put on by the club (such as outings and ad-hoc training sessions. You will still need to pay for and have British Cycling Race Silver membership.  If this is of interest, or to find out more, please contact Adam in the next 3 weeks on who will be able to help.
