A one hour coaching session for children aged 8-16 lead by British Cycling qualified coaches from Hemel Hempstead Cycling Club on the fast smooth tarmac of Bovingdon Airfield's 680m second "Flyer" racing circuit. All riders must be registed, preferably in advance. We invite parents to make a cash contribution to the cost of hiring the track (HHCC Members £5 & Non-members £8). This is a voluntary donation, but we hope that most people will be able to support us in this way. Please meet & sign on by 6:45pm for a bike check. If there are sufficient numbers, the riders will also be split into ability groups. The session starts at 7:00pm and finishes at 8:00pm. Riders can be unaccompanied or parents can stay & watch either the coaching or the adult races on the main "Bomber" circuit. Some parents even take the opportinity to try crit racing for themselves ...

Please make sure that you bring a drink and snack, helmet and gloves. Also please take a few minutes before coming to check that the rider’s helmet fits properly and the bike is in good working order. Riders should be using a road, mountain or a hybrid bike fitted with gears and road tyres. Please make sure there are no loose shoe laces or clothing that could be caught on the bike or in vegetation.
