We are back to 3 groups each session and online entry only. Fun sessions to improve those skills! Delivered by our British Cycling qualified coaches. These sessions are being run under the guidance given in British Cycling's Guidance which has been agreed with the Government Department for Culture Media and Sport. Matlock CC Club Members only please! Payment will be via an 'honesty box' at sign on - its £1 per rider per session - please note no change can be given! We will be keeping our 3 group structure (Bottom / Middle / Top) and we will only be coaching all 3 groups. of those groups per session. Guidance on groupings if you haven't been before is below; Bottom Group - youngest riders starting out aged 3 and up - balance bikes and riders taking their first pedal strokes. Bikes with no gears. Coaches are usually Tina / Maresa but others will be helping as necessary. Middle Group - older up to age 7/8 able to ride but looking to improve on skills and techniques. Coaches are usually Rob / Jules but others will be helping as necessary. Top / Eldest Group - eldest age up to 12/13 looking to enhance riding skills and techniques. Coaches are usually Martin / Andy but others will be helping as necessary. If we think you may need to move group we will inform you and you can move for the next session - riders can't change during the session. These events will be online entry only through a form publicised by the club on Facebook / website. Each group has limited numbers - Novice (youngest) is set at 15 riders (to allow close parental supervision by one parent only please), Beginners / Intermediate groups will have 20 riders each so it will be first come first served but the entry opening will be publicised in advance so its fair for everyone. Once full we can't accept any further entries for that particular event or entries on the day unfortunately given current circumstances. Hopefully across a number of sessions all the youngsters will be able to attend. If the event is full you will be given chance to be placed on a reserve list and a priority list for the next event for that group. Participants must not attend a ride or session if they have Covid-19 symptoms, have someone in their household who does and are in the extremely vulnerable category or if they have been asked to remain at home by the UK Government track and trace system. (this goes for the Coaches too!) Riders please don't share drinks / snacks or any equipment If any participant develops symptoms after the session please notify the club / coach so the group can be informed Riders to use their own equipment - please check that your bikes and kit are clean and in good working order. Please check over your child's bike ahead of the session as Coaches may not be able to assist with mechanical issues. Some more general things to be aware of around using the Park / Facilities: The toilets in the Whitworth Park building may be open but you must follow their guidance when you enter any of the buildings. Remember you may have to pay for Car Parking - follow the guidance on the signs. Any questions please let us know through our contact email and the Club and Coaches are looking forward to seeing the youngsters back riding their bikes! Matlock CC Coaches
