With 2016 now coming to a close, I would encourage you to look back and consider all of the hard work that went into some wonderful projects and performances during the year. From the cycling achievements of Team GB and Paralympics GB in the summer through to your own club development and rider successes: there is plenty to celebrate.
British Cycling announced a new lead partner deal with HSBC UK in September which puts us in a really strong position to grow the programme over the next eight years. It’s important however to remember all of the huge participation targets we have set and achieved and the exciting initiatives you’ve played a part in delivering over the eight years with Sky.
In this magazine we take a closer look at how the Go-Ride programme has changed, together with our accomplishments since 2008, which help to tell the story of how the programme has developed to delivering over a half a million opportunities for young riders annually. As you hold AGMs or award evenings over the winter, we encourage you to do the same: reflecting upon the ways your club has changed and how you might tackle any future challenges.
We hope that you share our excitement for what lies ahead and are looking forward to being part of Go-Ride as it continues to evolve. From 1 January British Cycling and all of its programmes will look a little different, though what’s important is that we continue to offer young riders the best possible start in the sport, working with committed volunteers like yourselves at a grassroots level.
With best wishes for the festive period.
Coaching, education and development director
