As a community based club run by volunteers we have kept the costs as low as possible.
Novice – 1 hour – £3 Intermediate group – 1 hour – £3 or 2 hours £5 Advanced group – 2 hours – £5
As in previous years, with the aim of improving the focus of the coaching and to cater for a range of abilities, riders will be strictly allocated to one of three groups. Movement between groups will be by coach agreement only. The proposed coaching subjects and what coaches are looking for in order to move riders between groups is shown below. The outline programme is subject to change, for example due to weather conditions.
Due to Bank holidays there are 17 coaching weeks, it is our intention that weeks 9 and 17 will consist of some competitive games and activities based around the coaching already done.
After much delay we are pleased to announce that the presentation evening for our Monday and Wednesday summer coaching sessions will be held on Wednesday 27th September 6pm at Walton le Dale Primary school, Severn Drive, PR5 4TD.

Sorry everyone about the late start and the short notice. This year’s club cyclocross practice/coaching sessions will again be on Withy Grove Park at Bamber Bridge, adjacent to the leisure centre.
Starting Thursday 24th September at 6pm. The aim will be to do approximately an hour of coaching and practice of basic techniques. All ages and members of Ribble Valley Juniors and Ribble Valley CRC welcome to take part.
From Thursday the 5th November we will move to a 6.30pm start time to allow more people time to get there, hopefully.
