Updates to the Go Ride page

The Go Ride page on the site has been updated with details of coaching in the weeks ahead and the 2015 Track Cluster Sessions. It is our intention to use this part of the site to keep parents and riders up to date about the Go Ride coaching sessions and link to documents from the club and BC that may be of interest/use to parents and riders.

      Hi Sara,

      All that’s needed is for you to turn up with her. We start at 10:30 on Saturday mornings and run through until 12:00. If you come for 10:15 we can get all the consent forms etc. signed. As for kit she will need a geared bike, a mountain bike is ideal. We operate off road only so a road bike would not be suitable. Obviously we require a helmet and recommend cycling gloves but unless the weather is inclement no other cycling kit is needed. As far as clothing if long trousers are worn then they need to be close fitting at the ankle so as to not catch in the chain. Similarly laces on trainers need to be tucked in to avoid catching.

      The sessions are normally £2 and this includes membership of the club.

      Hope this helps, anything further give us a shout. We’ll look forward to seeing you both.

    Hi Brian
    I am from the Rotary Club of Consett and we have organised a sponsored Bike ride on the 17th April from Lanchester along the old railway line. There is a short ride to Knitsley and back of 10 miles and a longer one of 28 miles.
    We were wondering if any of your members might be interested.
    Entry forms and further details are available from:


    Entry will include you in a raffle to win a state of the art monitor watch and 20% discounts from Proform Fitness .co.uk
