SundayYouth Road Ride.

Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before turning up to a Sunday Ride. 

Any new rider needs an induction ride and assessment.

The routine is for departure at 9,00am with a coffee stop at 10.15am and to be back by midday. Basic requirements

1) Riders must be self-sufficient on the roads (typcally age 12+) have a proper road bike, suitable kit, a helmet and adequate fitness for a 30-50 mile ride averaging 15 mph.

2) All riders must be VCC members and have British Cycling membership/third party insurance. VCC Club membership: We need a record of the riders for emergency contact details etc. Especially for Track and Trace!

3) Please also note that we have a mudguard policy over the winter. We won't turn you away if you haven't got this sorted, but we ask for riders to have the rear wheel covered to avoid spraying all of the riders behind. There are plenty of options out there (Race Guard and Crud2). Shout if you need advice. PLEASE SEE our new MUDGUARDS web site - https://www.verulamcc.org.uk/club-runs-a-activities/club-runs/mudguards.


Teamer App
 
Now this is really important! We use Teamer to know who will attend a session and ensure we have enough coaches on the day. For the track bikes this has become even more important as we really need to know how many track bikes we need to bring along.
 
If you have not done so already PLEASE register with Teamer and join the VCCYouth Development Team!!!
 
Please let me know if you are not invited and not seen any details or having technical difficulties. See - http://tinyurl.com/zteqyq9
 
and the new Teamer app showing we have a lot of kids interested for Saturday.
