Training & Coaching
Our free junior training sessions are a great opportunity to train with other riders and develop the fitness and skill you need to go as fast as possible! Junior riders are also able to train during open training sessions.
Bikes & Equipment
All our regular junior riders and YCL participants are allocated a track bike to use at Alkek Velodrome if they require one. We also collect kit donations including clothing, helmets and shoes which are allocated to riders on a needs and merit basis.
