What is Go-Ride?

Go-Ride is British Cycling’s development programme for young people and provides a fun and safe way to introduce young riders to the world of cycle sport. It looks to develop basic, intermediate and advanced bike handling skills. This involves games, skills, drills, group riding, close contact, race games and simulations.

Riders will be divided into 5 groups based on age, skill and ability.
