Penge Cycle club 5
Our youth section is known as Penge Go-Ride and meets most Saturdays during term time at Alexandra Junior School in Cator Road, Sydenham, SE26 5DS.
The youth section of the club currently has 50 members, aged between 5 and 16. Saturdays we have around 20-30 riders at the school and race days we about 70 children turning up and we are always looking for new members. Most of our riders are from Penge but we also have riders from Sydenham, Beckenham, Dulwich and South Norwood areas.
Why not come along and try out the club with a free session. Learn new bike skills, make new friends, get fitter, or even try racing.
The club is based at Alexandra Junior School, Cator Road, Sydenham. Sessions run most Saturdays (during term time). Sign on from 10am, with the sessions running from 10:15am – 12:00pm.
We hold occasional sessions at Crystal Palace Park, South Norwood Country Park, Beckenham Place Park and Herne Hill Velodrome. So please check the calendar/event programme in case we are on a family ride or at a race.
What is Go Ride?
Go-Ride is British Cycling’s development programme for young people. The programme provides a fun and safe way to introduce young riders to the world of cycle sport and provides a platform to improve bike handling skills. This is done in a traffic free environment through a mixture of games, exercises and races.
Our club is affiliated to British Cycling, with its activities covered by BC Insurance.
All Coaches are trained to Level 1 or Level 2, have been DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked and have First Aid Certificates.
If you are new to the sessions a parental consent form will need to be completed. You can do this now (print out, fill in and bring along to save time at registration) or you can fill in when you come along. The same form can be used for more than one child if you wish and the form is 2 pages long – BC Parental Consent HSBC
Please note the new membership rules start from September 2017 as our youth membership will be changing to match the adult side of the club. This means that after 3 sessions with us we require all riders to become a club member. If you still have not joined by that time then your subs will be increased to £5. (Normal subs are £3, free for first timers and £1 for coaches/helpers children).
All youth memberships can only be done online – here.
Youth Road Rides
We also offer Saturday youth road rides (to Greenwich – suitable 10yrs+) and Sunday rides (through the lanes – suitable 12yrs+).
You will need to complete a rider consent form – road-ride-parental-consent-formx2.
Also if you are thinking of joining any of our youth road rides we expect all adult and youth riders to have cycling insurance. Our club offers a discount with BC as we are affiliated with them if you look- here.
