Road Rides

Youth road rides are usually about 10 – 20 miles on quiet country lanes. Only for 8 year olds and over. \Usually any bike is fine. Older children will have the opportunity for a faster sections where its safe to do so. Some rides will be for older children only. Parents please use your own judgement as to whether your child is ready for the road, bearing in mind that Cycling UK says traffic awareness develops around the ages of 8 to 10. https://www.cyclinguk.org/article/cycling-guide/cycling-road-children

There are bronze, silver and gold standards to achieve. You can start any age though for most bronze will be achievable at about 7- 9 and silver 9 to 13. Members need to register with Paul to receive their record cards. WSJCC- Young Riders Training Awards v1
