Winter Rides 2021: Our young riders’ focus is now firmly on the cyclo cross season. See our Cyclo Cross website page (under ‘racing’ tab) for how to enter and for more info on these excellent fun races which are most Sundays till Xmas.

Our insurance is through Cycling UK. They stipulate that we can offer 3 club events to non-member guests. After this young riders need to be Members of WSJCC. Joining is via family membership and is simple via our website .
Road Rides for 8 to 12s are usually about 10 – 15 miles on quiet country lanes. Usually any bike is fine. . 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
We also run from time to time a 12-15 year olds road ride, either as a course designed to bridge from young rider to senior rider, or just as a faster and further ride for fun. We’d love to hear from any keen road bike riders of this age and we will arrange a series of rides. (See our Young Riders Policy for age rules and eticut when joining an ‘adult’ club ride.
