Preston Park Youth Cycle Club

Welcome to Preston Park Youth Cycle Club

We provide fun, skills and competitive cycling activities with fully qualified coaches at Preston Park Cycle Track and believe that cycling contributes strongly to a sustainable lifestyle. Our club caters for members aged 8 to 18 years, though we have some older and younger members. We meet between March and October, typically at Preston Park Cycle Track, every Saturday morning. The club also meets less often during the winter months.

Please see our Membership page if you wish to be placed on the waiting list for new members.
