Club volunteers who attend this year’s Go-Ride Conferences will automatically be entered into a prize draw for Olympic Cycling tickets.
12 pairs of tickets have been secured for the six conferences from a limited allocation of tickets received by British Cycling to distribute to Go-Ride club volunteers. All volunteers have to do to be entered into the draw is attend the Go-Ride Conference closest to them and ensure they are current British Cycling members!
A prize draw for two pairs of tickets will take place at the end of each conference as a conclusion to the day’s activities, which will provide an opportunity for all Go-Ride Club and School volunteers to come together to share and collect useful information on such areas as training, funding, membership, new Go-Ride programmes and much more.
Through a combination of practical advice and support, the emphasis for this year’s Go-Ride Conference season is on ‘Gearing up for the Games’ to ensure that our schools and clubs are in the best possible position to cater for the increased enthusiasm created by the Games.
Held in six superb venues throughout the country in March, the Conferences are split in to three optional areas to attend and in this article; we are going to focus on one workshop of three that are scheduled for the day’s activities.

The Rider Journey - (Workshop Two)
School Coach – Club Coach – Go-Ride Coach – Talent Coach –underpinned with Parental Support!
You need them all to succeed.
With the number of Go-Ride clubs expanding and demand for formal coach training on the rise, this year’s Go-Ride Conferences are looking at the development of both the club and the individual riders by exploring the Rider Journey.
The Development team has been working closely with British Cycling’s Talent Team programme and has mapped out what is actually available to our up and coming competitive cyclists from school coaching right through to post 16 and beyond.
By outlining the Rider Journey, club coaches can measure the progress of their riders across the age bands and the available opportunities and recognise where their contribution can best be targeted to ensure that riders can achieve their personal best.
