Go-Ride Racing is an exciting entry-level competition programme, which offers local competition for novice cyclists under the age of 16, helping young people to make a gradual transition into competitive cycling.

Racing events are delivered across Wales by Go-Ride Clubs and Welsh Cycling’s Young Rider Development Officers, with a range of prizes awarded, including certificates, medals, wristbands and trophies.

on the British Cycling calendar.

A British Cycling racing licence is not required and the events are strictly aimed at novice racing cyclists.

How clubs can get involved and host their own Go-Ride Racing events?

Including entry-level Go-Ride Racing opportunities as part of your club activities will give young riders the chance to experience the thrill and excitement of bike racing.

Hosting a Go-Ride Racing event is easy, all you need is a Level 2 coach and some enthusiastic volunteers. There are many fantastic reasons to get involved:

  • Receive prizes to award at your events
  • Events promoted on the British Cycling events calendar
  • Use of the British Cycling Event Organiser dashboard
  • Use of the British Cycling online entry system
  • Public liability insurance for racing competitions
  • Support from Welsh Cycling’s regional team

This year, the Go-Ride Racing programme will shine a spotlight on Go-Ride Racing events that include a girls-only race, by offering clubs additional resources and support. To celebrate racing for girls, we are encouraging clubs to host a girls-only race within their event, or host a dedicated event for girls. 

If you are a Go-Ride club and would like to host your own racing events, please get in touch with the Go-Ride team using the contact details below.
