Go-Ride school clubs are all about getting more young people into cycling. These clubs provide high quality coaching activities, delivered in a traffic-free environment.
Each school club must have a British Cycling qualified coach to run the coaching sessions. This can either be an external British Cycling qualified coach (e.g. from a local community club), or a qualified teacher who has attended one of British Cycling's cycling coaching courses, e.g. Cycling for Schools.
Teachers completing 'Coaching cycling for schools' will be provided with Go-Ride Gears coaching workbooks, which outline various activities and skills tests relevant to the age and ability of the group in question.
The workbook series consists of seven distinct levels or gears. Each Go-Ride Gears activity can be adjusted to make it easier or harder, depending on the age and ability of the participants. As such, your school will be able to choose from over 100 different coaching activities, ensuring that sessions never get boring or repetitive.
Linking with a Go-Ride Club can benefit your school by:
- Providing appropriate opportunities for further development and participation for young people
- Bringing cycling to a wider range of young people
- Helping to develop competition officials for major school events through British Cycling's Cycling Award for Young Volunteers (CAYV)
- Optimising the provision of coaching expertise and leadership in cycling at school level
