In 2015, Evans Cycles became an official partner of Go-Ride, British Cycling’s flagship programme for young people. Providing over 1,500 HOY bikes to run coaching and racing sessions across the country, the partnership between Evans Cycles and Go-Ride will help to deliver over two million opportunities for young people to get into cycling by 2020.
Go-Ride, which was started over a decade ago, is a network of over 300 clubs in communities and schools across the country. It aims to find the next generation of world champion cyclists, as the first step on The Rider Route for the Great Britain Cycling Team.
“Inspiring young people across the country to start cycling and realise how great it can be is something I really believe in. That’s why Evans Cycles and I jumped at the chance to provide HOY bikes for British Cycling’s Go-Ride programme over the next four years, and hopefully we can help find the world champions of tomorrow.”
Sir Chris Hoy, Evans Cycles ambassador
“Riding your bike is one of the greatest things in the world, and by partnering with British Cycling we can help youngsters across the country discover that for themselves. We’re enormously proud to be part of the Go-Ride programme and are flattered that British Cycling gave us the opportunity.”
