Within cycling, women make up just one-fifth of the coaching workforce. Things are changing however, with a 70% increase in the number of trained female coaches in the sport since 2013.
As an extension of our #WeRide women’s strategy we want to elevate female coaches and do all we can to provide support within the sport we love. That means establishing solid support networks of coaches and experienced mentors working collaboratively in order to share knowledge and create opportunity. The Ignite Your Coaching programme has been running since April 2016 in partnership with
There are some truly extraordinary women helping cycling to evolve through inspiring riders and inspiring change. If you are a qualified female coach - or currently in training - and committed to your coaching development, we call on you to ignite your coaching and join us. Here's how you can get involved:
Our free monthly webinar series discussing topics important to women and girls in cycling. Learn from experts, connect with the Ignite community, share your experiences and learn together.
Anyone is welcome to join - riders, coaches, leaders - or just those with an interest in the discussion.
British Cycling Coaches Network
A social network for qualified British Cycling Coaches on Facebook - a place to connect with the community, share ideas and ask questions.
Our mentoring programme connects experienced female coach mentors with female coach mentees to support, guide and nurture.
We’re really interested in hearing from qualified coaches looking for a bit more support or from you if you qualified as a coach and have become inactive, as this is a great opportunity to re-ignite your talent.
If instead you feel that you would be able to share valuable experience and take on a leadership role, why not join as a mentor and push your own capabilities in search of a fair and pioneering coaching environment?
