The Go-Ride Club is open to riders of all levels, aged five to fourteen. We aim to give riders the opportunity to develop new skills, get fitter, socialise, and have fun. We also provide information about cycle competitions and events.
Our coaches hold weekly sessions at Glossopdale School, Talbot Road site. The sessions run from 10-11am, April until November. Any type of bike is suitable.
