The mainstay of the youth section is the Monday night coaching sessions. During the winter months we concentrate on off-road skills around the outside of the Tiddington track, with many of our riders participating in the West Midlands Cyclo Cross League. During the cyclo cross season we run a mini Stratford Cyclo Cross League, consisting of 5 of the WMCCL events held closest to Stratford – CLICK HERE FOR LATEST RESULTS!
When the clocks change we move to the track, preparing for the summer racing season.
The club currently provides four different coaching levels to suit all ages and abilities:
|Group Name||Coaching Level|
|POOLEY||For young/novice riders to learn the basic skills and techniques of bike riding.|
|ROMERO||For more experienced young riders to improve their basic and intermediate skills and techniques|
|COOKE||The next step for riders to develop their skills using the whole 400m track.|
|PENDLETON||For older and more experienced riders to practise their skills and race-craft.|
On your first visit to either a track or cyclo-cross session at Tiddington, our qualified coaches will be happy to assess your riding skills – this will ensure you are placed in the most suitable coaching group.
Please note: our coaching groups are not categorised on age but on riding ability.
