Beacon Academy autumn 2019 events

Following on from a successful summer of events, the Beacon Cycling Academy, the club’s youth coaching section, will be putting on some coaching sessions this autumn. The event details are available on Facebook, via the links below.

Autumn 2019 Rowheath/Holders Lane coaching sessions:

1 Thursday 3 October 17:45-18:45
2 Wednesday 30 October 11:00-13:00
3 Tuesday 26 November 18:00-19:00

During the autumn, the Academy will be offering some coaching sessions at Rowheath Playing Fields in Bournville and at Holders Lane, near Cannon Hill Park. Keep your eye on the Facebook feed for details of any additional sessions. These sessions take place in a traffic-free environment and are led by qualified coaches who introduce riders to skills used in different forms of cycle sport and include some racing, with the emphasis very much on fun. Sessions cost £2 for members and are free for first timers (membership costs £10 for the year). If weather conditions are bad, please check the Facebook page for cancellations.

Beacon Academy Go-Ride sessions are aimed at young people who can already ride a bicycle and have sufficient co-ordination to stay safe in a group. Riders should wear a helmet at all times, have a well maintained bicycle, a drink and bring appropriate clothing and gloves.
