Rider selection will be based upon results in the National Junior Race Series, the National Junior Championship and other races on the open road up to 18th July 2015. The team will be selected and riders informed by 22nd July 2015.

The team manager and coach should have experience of working with young athletes and be prepared to undertake an online course in child protection, if they do not already hold this. Other desirable characteristics are experience of convoy driving in cycling events, basic mechanical knowledge and experience and knowledge of cycling events.

1-4pm 27th June, Belmont Community Centre, Sunderland Road, Gilesgate Moor, Durham, DH1 2LL

Clubs and unattached BC members are invited to take part in a review of the British Cycling North East development plan. The board, elected by BC clubs, wish to discuss progress in developing cycling in the region and consult with you, our stakeholders, in taking the sport forward.

Much of the potential to expand and improve cycling lies in finding volunteers to take on roles and develop initiatives. We are therefore looking for potential new recruits in all these areas:

  • Race commissaires – all disciplines
  • Marshals – willing to qualify in the “accredited marshal” scheme
  • Race organisers – we can offer excellent support to anyone new to this
  • Managers for youth and junior teams – all disciplines
  • Coaches
  • Workgroup members – see how our board structure enables you to get involved according to your interest.

Come along to find out what the board and existing volunteers and officers are doing on your behalf – refreshments provided for those willing to give up their Saturday afternoon!
