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 contact our membership secretary if you wish to be placed on the waiting list for new members.

Club Road Ride Sunday 22nd January

Club road rides continue on Sunday 22nd January for riders 12 and older (with parental permission)  Parents are encouraged to come along

The route will be decided on the day and be tailored for all abilities. 

Meet at the track ready to leave at 10.00am for a two hour ride though note that we commonly return at 12.30 or after. There will be no charge  but the nature of these rides is that a higher level of self-sufficiency is required. This means riders should be capable of safe return if they become separated from the group and that suitable clothing and equipment are used. Thus there should be no new participants without prior agreement. Similarly these are club rides and not coaching sessions, so will aim to be more continuous ride, with limited stopping.

Please ensure your bikes are road worthy this includes using tyres that are not worn or suffering cuts and nicks. COME FULLY CLOTHED FOR THE COLDER WEATHER or you will not be welcome to ride. Bad weather cancellations will be posted on the website by 9am

A new year brings new riding opportunities – track riding for youth and women at Lee Valley velodrome

Go-Ride Sessions at Lee Valley velodrome for youths

Sign-up for Go Ride cluster sessions at Lee Valley.

Regional track sessions for first-claim riders from South East region Go-Ride clubs. Open to riders aged 10-18. We will accept entries from non-South East members in the final week before a session. Run by Go-Ride club volunteer coaches  and supported by British Cycling regional development staff.

Please note, 10 and 11 year olds must have regional race experience from any discipline. For younger riders, we recommend getting started at outdoor tracks like Herne Hill Velodrome or Preston Park Velodrome.

Entry is £12. Shoes (£6) and track bikes (£10) can also be hired. Please arrange and pay for these at the velodrome reception on the morning of the session. Bikes can be used with Look Keo compatible shoes. Pedals can’t be changed.

Not yet confirmed, but these are expected to continue into April and May, depending on how they fit in with the youth omniums. Last year rider demand dropped off over summer, and so from May/June there will be a pause in the sessions until September. During that break time the British Cycling coaches will be running holiday programmes on the track (and road circuit and MTB trails at Lee Valley) for club riders.

For Thursday evenings, once Youth Track League finishes in March, there will be  club cluster sessions from 7-9pm, April-September, to provide some regular track time for riders, and to cater for those progressing from the Monday night after school track club, which has been very successful.

Go-Ride Sessions at Lee Valley velodrome for Women and Girls Sessions

The Sunday March 19th session is a SE women and girls session (will be open to book from next week). After this session Female sessions are part of the Lee Valley in-house schedule from April. They will be monthly, on Sunday evenings 7-9.  Bookings will be made through Lee Valley’s website.
