No Light Stops Play

Reluctantly our coaches have decided that for safety reasons we are going to cancel this weeks session. It's just getting too dark to run the session effectively.

We are visiting a potential winter venue that is floodlit and also have an idea to run family rides over winter weekends.

Look out for further announcements shortly!

Our Sessions

We are now at Holmebrook Valley Park every Thursday until 22nd October as long as the light holds out!
Our coaches want to continue over the winter but are considering various alternatives.
We have funding to train more coaches - if anyone is interested please get in contact and we can explain what the procedure is.

Summer Break

With the completion of our session last week we have now finished the initial run of 6 weeks. We had an average of just over 22 children taking part per week.

We are planning to start again in September with another run of 6 sessions until dark evenings prevent us from being at Holmebrook Valley Park.

Thanks to all who have supported us!

With our 5th session completed yesterday next week is the last session of our initial run of 6. We expect to start again in September, probably on the 10th. Confirmation will be emailed to parents and also appear on our social media.

Great to see 23 riders tonight. We had to use the grass because the council didn't cone off the car park! Decided to have two groups again with younger and older.
Here is our older group:

About the club

We are forming a new cycling club in Chesterfield. Starting in June 2015 we will provide fun sessions with coaching delivered by British Cycling coaches. There will be some competitive element.

Chesterfield Borough Council have agreed that we can use Holmebrook Valley Park as a venue. We will be using the car park on the left just before the cafe building. Postcode is S41 8XP.

For the future we hope to introduce a social element and include disability sport together with visits to other cycling venues.
