Strictly Cycling 2016

Strictly Cycling is a programme of coaching sessions for grass track and cyclo-cross cycling and participation events developed by Twickenham Cycling Club (TCC) in partnership with London Borough of Richmond (LBRuT).  The programme provides opportunities for young people to experience cycling sessions of all types and to take part in cycling competitions.

Community & Club Grass Track: Sessions take place in Kneller Gardens on Thursday evenings from Thursday 5th May, 2016 until Thursday 21st July, 2016 inclusive.  The sessions start at 6.30pm and run until 8pm for the younger riders and 8.30pm for the older riders.  The sessions are aimed at young riders from age 12 upwards and each session has a combination of skills training and competitive efforts and over the whole series we aim to give the riders a flavour of both grass track and cyclo-cross disciplines. The session cost is £1 per rider.  You don’t have to book just come along and bring your bike, no matter what sort of bike it is, but a helmet is compulsory.
