Back in the Spring edition of the magazine I highlighted just how big this year was going to be for cycling - and we’ve already seen some hugely impressive results. From the nine medals won at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships through to Lizzie Armitstead’s early-season winning streak and talented young riders emerging in the worlds of BMX, cyclo-cross and mountain biking, the Great Britain Cycling Team are on form.
In the past success at this elite level has had a proven effect on the number of people heading out on their bikes and getting active. With the Olympics and Paralympics just around the corner, we’re sure to see a repeat of this pattern.
To celebrate the achievements of the team and share the summer party spirit amongst clubs we’ve launched the Go-Ride Summer of Cycling, where a range of coached activities will be running throughout August. I really hope that your club has been able to get involved and that you have some exciting events in the calendar. We’re certainly looking forward to seeing your photos and videos come through.
Another brilliant project for our young members is the launch of a new membership pack for 2016, which is packed with challenging quizzes, glimpses into the life of the Great Britain Cycling Team and a Rio planner to record all of the action from the Games. With a huge 70% of the squad starting out at Go-Ride Clubs, this is a huge reinforcement of the great work that you are all doing to give young riders the best possible start in the sport.
Thanks for your continued support and keep up the good work!
