Youth Cycling and Odd Down

Bath Cycling Club is proud to be an integral part of the Sulis Scorpions Youth Cycling Alliance (SSYCA), providing youth coaching sessions at the Odd Down Cycling Circuit.

Sulis Scorpions is an alliance between the Bath & North East Somerset based community cycling clubs (Bath CC, VC Walcot and Somer Valley CC) which is supported by B&NES Council (Go by Bike and Wheels for All) and British Cycling.

Coaching is provided by Level 2 qualified British Cycling Coaches with further coaches to be trained to allow the number and variety of sessions that the SSYCA is able to offer to grow. This is an exciting time for Youth Cycling in Bath.

The SSYCA is offering youth coaching on a Saturday morning with around 17 per group:

  • Group D 09:00-10:00 age 7-8
  • Groups B & C 10:00-11:00 separate groups for age 9-11 and 11 or above

A 6 week coaching course costs £15 per rider.

For induction courses, and other more advanced courses, it is essential to book in advance. Contact [email protected]

The plan is to have discipline specific coaching (group A) for MTB, road cycling by summer 2014.

Full details and session booking is available under Events on the Sulis Scorpions website.

Public sessions are also available throughout the week. For full details see Go-Bike.

Youth Safeguarding

The club has adopted the British Cycling Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy for these youth activities.

As a Go-Ride club Bath CC and as part of the adopted British Cycling’s policy on Safeguarding & Protecting children, we need a signed parental consent parental consent form the first time any rider under age 18 participates in a Bath CC club activity. Additionally riders under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or carer. The parental consent form should be handed by the parent or carer to the ride leader or any other club official before the youth’s first ride.
