go-ride information


Club members who are committed to racing may find the club's sociable rides inappropriate to their needs when preparing for specific events. So the Beacon seeks to support racing members in various ways.

The Beacon Academy is the youth section of Beacon RCC that provides cycling coaching for children aged 5 and upwards. The emphasis is on fun and improving bike handling skills and confidence and ability to ride and race safely around others.

We also offer members race coaching at the Tudor Grange circuit which focus on road racing skills.

Beacon's racers often get together for evening and weekend 'training bashes', some of which involve riders from several clubs.

Finally, the club has a number of BC-registered coaches, who can be consulted for personal advice. If you would like to be put in touch with one of our coaches, please contact us. In addition, informal advice is always available from the many experienced riders at the club, who include men and women who have won national titles and other prestigious events. The best starting point for informal advice is the message board.

Safeguarding & Welfare

In line with most sports clubs we have a welfare officer, currently David Cox, who has been on the Sports Partnership Safeguarding and Protecting Children training. Any concerns re safeguarding, child protection or protection of vulnerable people can be referred to David in the first instance via a direct message on the message board, or by phone using a number published in the membership pack.
