As a British Cycling Go Ride registered club, we operate a code of conduct that covers all of our riders/parents/carers coaches and volunteers.



Code of Conduct for Young Rider

Code of Conduct for Parent / Carer

As a member of the club, you are expected to abide by the following code.

I will:

Arrive for training and competition in good time to prepare properly, on a bike that is in good working order.

Wear suitable kit (including a helmet) and clothing for all cycling activity sessions, as agreed with the coach.

Warm up and cool down properly on all occasions.

Come prepared with:  a full water bottle

If appropriate, you will also need lights, an inner tube for my bike, tools for my bike, a waterproof, and a rucksack to carry my own kit.

Play within the rules and respect coaches and all their decisions.

Be a good sport by applauding all good performances, whether they are made by my club or the other cycling club members.

Treat all participants in cycling as I would like to be treated – not bullying or taking unfair advantage of another participant.

Cooperate with my coach, club mates and other cycling club members – remember, without them there would be no club activities.


As a parent/carer of a member of the club, you are expected to abide by the following code.

I will:

Advise the coach if my child has to leave early or is being collected by someone other than a parent/carer, giving details of the arrangement including who will be collecting my child, and at what time.

Encourage my child to learn the rules and play within them.

Help my child to recognise good performance, not just results.

Support my child’s involvement and help him/her to enjoy his/her sport.

Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not my own.

Show appreciation and respect for coaches and other volunteers. Remember, without them, your child could not participate.


Safeguarding of our club members is our highest priority, and we follow the British Cycling Safeguarding policies and guidelines.

Our Welfare Officer is Christine James.

If anyone has any concerns or worries please contact Christine on: chrisknowle@gmail.com
