About our club

Solent Pirates is a dedicated youth cycling club formed in 2012 and based along the South coast in West Sussex and Hampshire between Chichester and Portsmouth.

The club is solely focused on aspiring cyclists aged 6 - 16 years and all sessions are run by unpaid but qualified coaches and volunteer helpers. Our older members are Junior riders who have come through the Pirates' "ranks" ans still receive Club support, coaching and continue to enjoy the sport with Club friends; and parents, many of whom coach or volunteer in other capacities with the Club.

Our HQ is at Thorney Island where we hold road and CX sessions in a traffic-free and highly supportive environment. We have recently improved our portacabin base facility there, consolidating our beneficial relationship with landowner hosts, the MOD. We also use a range of other locations including Calshot and Bournemouth Velodromes and others for mountain bike and CX training.

We support our riders in racing on the road, track, CX, MTB XC and now also time-trialing. We also run Club rides and enjoy winter sessions on rollers. We have around 20 coaches covering various cycling disciplines and many SPYCC volunteers who are invaluable to further support our training sessions.

We want our cyclists to have fun with friends, participate in an exciting and varied sport and improve their skills through coaching sessions and competition.

Sessions vary in both location and activity but the Club Calendar page on our website will always indicate what we will be doing and where.
