A two hour introductory cyclocross training session for children aged 8-16 lead by British Cycling qualified coaches from Hemel Hempstead Cycling Club. All riders must be registed, preferably in advance. Please meet & sign on by 1:45pm for a bike check. We invite parents to make a cash contribution to the cost of buying the equipment needed to stage these sessions (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. If there are sufficient numbers, the riders will also be split into ability groups. The session starts at 2pm and finishes at 4pm. Riders can be unaccompanied or parents can come along for all or part of the session. If there is sufficient interest, a separate adult cyclocross practice circuit will also be set up.  

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 cyclocross, mountain or a hybrid bike fitted with gears and treaded offroad tyres. Please make sure there are no loose shoe laces or clothing that could be caught on the bike or in vegetation.
