Young riders

Post by Martin » Wed Jan 23, 2019 7:32 pm

I'm asked whether we can accommodate minors.
Does anyone know of any clubs that welcome 12-year-olds?
If so, please respond to this or write to the membership sec. and I'll pass it on.

Martin, sotonia has a youth group. They do cyclocross training on Saturday morning in Southampton and races are optional. Cost is minimal. They cater for 6 to 16 year-old approx.
I believe there is a BMX club/ group which meet in chandlers Ford.
Also British cycling do cyclocross training for under 16's at Southampton sports centre on a Thursday evening.

Hi Martin,

VC Venta (Winchester) also have a strong youth section (over 129 riders) with many riders under 12. We have regular off-road training sessions, as well as go-ride coaching and monthly road rides. We also have youths racing in Circuit Races, Cyclo Cross and Track.
