Go-Ride is a cycling programme run by the governing body of the sport, British Cycling. A national network of Go-Ride cycling clubs all have trained British Cycling coaches who run a wide range of cycling activities for under-18s of all abilities. Bath C.C. and V.C. Walcot are registered Go-Ride clubs.
Cycling activities include a variety of fun games, which teach cycling skills and which can be done on any bike. All take place on the traffic-free circuit. Parents can be safe in the knowledge that their children are involved in a healthy, beneficial, sporting and recreational activity organised by a child-friendly club that is affiliated to British Cycling.
All Go-Ride clubs have a child welfare officer and appropriately trained and insured British Cycling coaches who have attended good practice and child-protection workshops. Where possible we will put riders in ability groups and finish the session with a lap of the circuit, to burn off any energy that might be still there.
Riders must complete the four week induction course before joining one of the development squads. The next Go-Ride induction courses will start in March 2015. If you contact us with your child’s name and age we will let you know when the on-line entries open. The minimum age is 7 years old, see our Joining page for more details.
