Rider Development image

Our aim is to help any members' who want to help themselves to achieve new cycling goals. 

How do you want to become a better cyclist?

The club has set aside a significant budget for activities designed to help members who want to improve their riding ability and achieve new goals.

  1. Are you aiming for a PB in a Sportive?

  2. Do you want to improve your times in club TT events (or try your first TT)?

  3. Do you want to enter your first race at the Redbourn Fete Du Velo?

  4. Are you looking to ride stronger and move up a group in the Club runs?

We are pleased to have secured support for our programme from Cyclism, the coaching organisation founded and owned by Alex Dowsett.
