Dartmoor VeloJunior Cycling Club, Tavistock Devon
COME & GIVE CYCLING A GO – We are a super friendly club
Improve your skills, keep fit, race if you want to, and have fun!
Dartmoor Velo Cycling Club is for children aged 8-16 and is based in Tavistock, Devon. We run coaching sessions on Saturday mornings for beginners and improvers. We also run winter rollers and zwift training sessions and outdoor mountain and road bike rides for children wanting to progress.
We have riders who race across the South West in Regional Cyclocross and Mountain bike Cross-Country races and our green jerseys are regularly seen on podiums!
We also have a group of riders aged 12+ who are wanting to progress their racing to the next level and who race on the British Cycling National Circuit at Cyclocross and XC and do extremely well.
Whether your child is just starting out or aspires to be the next Tom Pidcock, we will support and nurture them throughout their cycling journey! We have a super enthusiastic team of volunteer coaches who are also keen cyclists themselves!
What do we get up to?
From riding up on Dartmoor to starting at any of the South West’s regional races… there is something for everyone within the club. We have the biggest variety of activities on offer of any of the clubs around. We often run family rides too, where parents and siblings can come along and join in the Dartmoor Velo fun. Our membership price is the same whether you take part in one or four activities with us per week! Check out our latest news blog posts below to see what’s been happening recently in the club.
