Under the guidance of our qualified coaches, instructors and guides, we’ll help you to meet new friends, explore new areas, have fantastic cycling adventures, learn new skills, maybe event try something new.

Our main focus for the club is those aged 12* to 16 (*includes those year 7 secondary school pupils aged 11) but we’ll also be running events for the younger rider aged 7 to 11 and there will be family orientated events too, and especially for the younger riders not just cycling related.

“As a kid I had a dream — I wanted to own my own bicycle. When I got the bike I must have been the happiest boy in Liverpool, maybe the world. I lived for that bike. Most kids left their bike in the backyard at night. Not me. I insisted on taking mine indoors and the first night I even kept it in my bed.”

John Lennon, British musician
