Event description

Slipstreamers Induction - All Ages 5-16 Years

Wednesday 24th of October 2018, 1pm until 5pm


Slipstreamers is a youth cycling charity for children aged 5-16 years, run ENTIRELY 100% by unpaid Volunteers, with a keen focus on the whole development of young people. We are a community of teachers, plumbers, artists, engineers, ceo's, directors, developers, housewives, house-husbands, lawyers, etc, working very hard to provide ongoing opportunities through cycling, young volunteering and youth leadership to our members, as well as the wider cycling community. We are a British Cycling Go-Ride Club with Sport England's Clubmark quality accreditation; as well as a member of London Youth with a Bronze Quality Mark accreditation from City & Guilds.

Who Is Eligible for the 24th October Induction?

All children aged 5-16 years are eligible. Safety is our number one priority above all else, and we need to ensure the correct rider to Coach ratios are observed at all times. With large numbers of children of varying abilities across the circuit every Saturday, we must manage these vigilantly. Therefore, all inductions are planned and administered very carefully so as not to impact current groups, ensure sufficient volunteer coverage, and facilitate smooth transition from induction to our Bronze development group which is where ALL new riders commence their Slipstreamers journey.

Please note normally, inductions are held on a Saturday, however due to Coach availability this one will be held on the Wednesday during half-term as noted above. After the induction, children who are interested in joining Slipstreamers will be able to join the Saturday coaching session the following weekend as part of their trial period. Full information will be provided during the Parent/ Guardian induction briefing after registration on the 24th.
