Bigfoot Youth CC

Welcome to Bigfoot Youth CC

Bigfoot Youth CC is a Bromley-based cycling club for children from 4 years old and upwards. The club runs coaching sessions under the supervision of its British Cycling-qualified coaches. Members can also choose to take part in rides and races. Through the club members develop their fitness and bike handling skills in a fun, friendly and safe environment.

The club has four sections: the Balance branch (for children yet to learn to ride a pedal bike), the Mini branch for 5 to 7 year olds, the Junior branch for 7 to 11 years old and the Youth branch for secondary school children. We also have two other websites: for Rides: www.bigfootgoriding.org and Races: www.southlondongoracing.org (races run by Bigfoot and other local clubs)

We share our name with the adult cycle club Bigfoot CC - the name is from a former local bike shop in Hayes Village.
