Go-Ride Summer of Cycling

Summer is made for cycling, due to longer days, higher temperatures and time off school! The GB Cycling Team will soon be heading to Rio, and riders from North East Go-Ride clubs can try the same disciplines as their heroes, locally.

A six event Go-Ride race series is scheduled for August at five different venues across the North East region.The series gives Go-Ride clubs an opportunity for riders to try one of five different disciplines across five venues, Road, Track, BMX, Mountain Bike, and Cycle Speedway.

We know that coaches and volunteers at  are always coming up with new activities, tricky techniques and fun themes to challenge their young riders.

There have been themed sessions, bike Jenga and ‘last across the line’ races to name just a few, with lots of other ideas shared on social media.

Led by Go-Ride coaches Andy & Jack with support from local Go-Ride clubs this series will enable you to meet new friends, learn new skills, and find out about more on and off the bike opportunities in the region. Each event costs only £1.00.
