Youth Go-Ride sessions at Crystal Palace Park

These sessions involve group riding and mini sessions within Crystal Palace Park – meeting at the top main car park at 10am. (This car park entrance is off Anerley Hill, SE20). 

Signing up beforehand is now required – booking opens on Wednesday’s.
Sessions are free of charge, but numbers are strictly limited, and you have to book beforehand. Your child must be a member, but we are still welcoming new riders to try us out before joining the club.

If you have not booked, please do not turn up on the day as unfortunately you will not be allowed to take part.

Sessions will start at 10am and will finish around 11.30am. The coach that your child is riding with will advise you on the finishing time.  

These sessions are suitable for competent riders who can ride unaided by themselves, but if they are not their parents are welcome to ride along to help. These sessions are not suitable for absolute new beginners. 

If you are riding with us as a parent and within the group to help your child, then you must register yourself as well as your child.  If you wish to follow your child around the park at a safe distance and keep separate from their group, then you do not need to register yourself.

Group sizes
Our group sizes of 6 will include the coach, riders and any parents who are also joining in for the ride. We will have around 3 or 4 groups of 6 using different areas of the park.  You must stay in your group for the entire session – no changing around is now allowed.

Session numbers
Numbers are limited, depending on how many coaches are available for the session.
