Strictly Cycling started in 2013 as a legacy of the 2012 London Olympics. It is a joint venture between Twickenham Cycling Club and London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames and is held in Kneller Gardens Twickenham TW2 6PH on Thursday evenings between May and July.
Strictly Cycling gives grass track cycling experience to young riders aged between 6 and 16 years. Our coaches all hold cycling qualifications from British Cycling, First Aid certificates (which are renewed every 3 years) and are DBS checked. The coaches have also undertaken a Safeguarding course.
What parents say about Strictly Cycling...
“Great at teaching kids good riding skills through a wide variety of different activities and fun races. Liked that kids got to work in teams together across a wide age group supporting each other (e.g. Team pursuit). Younger kids are inspired by the older kids. Also liked the pay as you go so kids can try a few sessions to see if they like it and come as many or few times as they want.”
“Great for getting kids interested in cycling and improving bike handling in addition to making lots of new friends.”
“It introduced my son to cycling and last year he won a National award so without this club he may never have been hooked on cycling. Its a superb club and the sessions are fantastic.”
“Safe way for the children to cycle and learn awareness of each other cycling.This session is a wonderfully enjoyable experience for my 8 year old. It is affordable (probably too cheap to be fair), the coaches obviously teach it out of love for cycling and inspiring kids; they put a huge amount of effort and enthusiasm into it. It seems like every single child has a great time for the whole of the session. What’s not to like?!!!”
