Cycle Development North East packages for Schools

CDNE provides professional cycling coaching for schools with fully qualified British Cycling coaches. Our overall plan is to help improve and develop the provision of cycling for the pupils in your school and provide an exit route for riders who want to take things further by highlighting the opportunities available through British Cycling’s Go-Ride programme.

School Cycling Clubs or After School Clubs

British Cycling’s Go-Ride programme provides support to teachers looking to setup cycling clubs in a school environment as these are a great way to get more young people interested in cycling.

In order to register as a Go-Ride School club, they must first have a British Cycling qualified coach or ‘Cycling for Schools’ qualified teacher and be able to deliver cycling activities in a traffic free environment such as a playground or playing fields. The sessions can be run as either an after-school club, or during curriculum PE.

We can help your school get to this level and work with you to make sure the sessions are kept up to date and exciting and linking in with local and regional activity.
