Kid's section

We are in the early stages of planning a kid's section which will run in parallel but insulated from adult club. The section will have a separate committee and finances from the adult club.

The kid's club will be aiming for GoRide accreditation, Scottish Cycling's programme for developing youth cycling.

The kids club will revolve around a Saturday morning or evening training session following the GoRide manuals, which are provided by Scottish Cycling . The emphasis is on fun, while teaching a variety of cycling skills which can be done on any bike. All the activities take place on traffic free facilities, such as school playing fields and playgrounds.

We are looking for volunteers to get involved with running the section and start planning the next year for a launch in April 2010.

If you are interested in getting involved or want to find out more information about the kids section come along to the first planning meeting.
Please email me (Matt) directly at if you would like to attend.

Date: Wednesday 11th November
Time: 8pm
Location: TBA

I've visited a Johnstone Jets training session and plan to model our kids section on their set up.
