Doncaster Wheelers Cycling Club has been awarded a £3,000 grant from Lloyds Bank to enable it to continue to develop cycling activities for young people in Doncaster.
The club, established in 1926, applied to the community fund to help increase the number of qualified coaches with a view to offering more cycle activities and coaching skills to under 16’s year olds.
Doncaster Wheelers Chairman Trevor Siddons said: “We really want to get more young people involved in cycling for fun and as a sport. The Lloyds Bank Community Fund will enable us to deliver more opportunities for young people across Doncaster.”
The club will now further develop Go-Ride coaching sessions and as well as rides throughout the year to encourage young people to experience cycling as a sport.
Go-Ride sessions are run by British Cycling qualified coaches from Doncaster Wheelers Cycling Club and aim to improve the ability and confidence of young riders in challenging and fun ways.
The sessions are designed to progressively develop bike handling skills, improve fitness and introduce riders to different types of cycling and racing.
The Lloyds Bank Community Fund was set up to help local people across England, Wales, and Northern
