History & Coaching
Annan Youth Cycling Club started out in 2009 after a successful trial with Scottish Cycling and Annandale and Eskdale Sports Academy. Our aim is to get kids from the ages of 6-16 into the fantastic world of cycling and provide coaching sessions in a fun and safe environment to develop the skills necessary to enjoy cycling. We hold weekly sessions in the Annan and surrounding areas and cover most disciplines of cycling including road, mountain and grass track racing. Our club is registered with Scottish Cycling as a go-ride club and is working toward club accreditation. We also work closely with Scottish Cycling to provide members with development opportunities through the various programmes they have in place. Our coaches are fully vetted through Disclosure Scotland. If your interested in seeing what we are about, pop along to one of our sessions and speak to one of our coaches.
Coaching sessions normally take place at Seaforth Pavilion in Annan although we do occasionally deliver sessions at the Everholm, Hoddom Castle or other locations if they become available (we have been known to have sessions at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome or the Broadwood BMX Track in Cumbernauld (where our photo collage above was taken)) to allow us to deliver a wide variety of sessions and cycling disciplines. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for locations and times of our sessions!
Thanks to our friends at Annandale.TV, we have a couple of videos available of our recent Dirt Crit Races which we organise as a Club as part of the South West Scotland Winter Series and which our members compete in.
