British Cycling’s development programme for young people, Go-Ride, offers many opportunities for young females to get involved with cycle sport. With clubs across the country, riders can develop their bike handling skills, try out the different disciplines and take part in Go-Ride Racing – British Cycling’s entry level racing. Find your local club here.
In particular, the Go-Ride programme has recently launched Rider Development Sessions for Women and Girls, which are female-only coaching sessions in traffic-free environments. Delivered across the country, the sessions help riders to build confidence and learn cycling techniques in a relaxed and informal setting.
The number of young women getting involved with volunteering at Go-Ride cycling clubs is also on the up, with girls overtaking the boys when it comes to completing the Cycling Award for Young Volunteers.
