Go-Ride for riders aged 6-16
Latest News, hot off the press:
Muddy Monsters age Grouping:
If you are not sure which age group you are in for the Muddy Monsters races then this should make it clear.
Under 8's - Born after 2016
Under 10's - Born 2015 or 2016
Under 12's - Born 2013 or 2014
Under 14's - 2011 or 2012
If you think you will struggle in a particular group there is some leniency allowed to move you down to the younger age bracket - you can request this of the organisers at each event, might be best to see how competitive the riders are at Hitchin and then take a view, obviously the intention is not to move to a group where you will find it too easy! Similarly if you are far too good for your age group, you may be moved up to the next one.
We are keen to help children develop an interest in cycling, as a healthy, social and fun way of keeping active.
We are accredited by British Cycling and have earned the Clubmark certificate as a club which is well run, community spirited and with a proper understanding of our Duty of Care to our members.
Whether its a spin in the back garden, splashing through puddles in the park or tearing around a local pump track- cycling is an essential part of growing up.
Embracing this approach, British Cycling created the HSBC UK Go-Ride programme - with over 350 children’s cycling clubs helping thousands of young people enjoy the freedom of cycling and develop lifelong skills.
Local kids cycling clubs are fantastic places to get out on a bike, with expert coaching, a gang of riding buddies and access to some amazing cycling facilities.
Our sessions are mostly run at Priory Park near Bedford, a safe, off-road environment. In addition we arrange for the children to compete at local GoRide races in a truly friendly and inclusive atmosphere.
With most of the Great Britain Cycling Team starting out in Go-Ride Clubs, they are a great place to start for aspiring champions.
