Ride Social
Cycling’s even more fun when you do it with other people. Join bike rides organised by local cyclists or create your own.



Go-Ride is British Cycling’s development programme for young people. The programme provides a fun and safe way to introduce U16’s to the world of cycle sport and improve their skills on a bike.

Riders can get involved through one of our many holiday coaching programmes or at a local Go-Ride Club.

Young people will be able to sample the various cycle sport disciplines and start enjoying one of the fastest growing sports in the UK today.

For those who are already involved and want to move forwards, Go-Ride has it covered with the new Go-Ride Racing Competition Programme.

Go-Ride Racing is British Cycling’s exciting competition programme which help’s young riders make the transition from school or club coaching sessions to inter club and open regional competition. Go-Ride Racing events offer entry level, local competition for young cyclists under the age of 16. BC Racing Licences are NOT required and the events are aimed at novice racing cyclists.

Please note racing licences will be required when making the step up to regional level competition.
