The Lyme Racing Club is proud of the fact that we have a large number of Youth members with ages ranging from 3 to 16 years of age.
Our qualified coaches can help to provide both training and racing opportunities for our young people in various cycling disciplines. The drive and desire to help to develop young people in our sport is strong within our constantly growing membership.
In order to take full advantage of the opportunities to help to develop and to have the necessary recognition as an area of cycling excellence we are currently a British Cycling nationally Go-Ride club. We recommend riders for RSR'S, NSR'S and take a full part in the coaching of these. We also run GO-RACE events, these are a way for junior members to take part and experience cycle racing.
