Welcome to Paisley 2015 - Sunday July 12th

In October 2014 British Cycling announced that the National Youth Circuit Race Championships had been awarded to Paisley, the first time Scotland has hosted the championships. The event takes place on Sunday July 12th.

The venue has previously been used for the Scottish Circuit Championships and is based on a town centre route through Paisley Cross, St Mirren Brae, New Street, High Street, Storrie Street and around the periphery of the outstanding Paisley Abbey and Town Hall.

Renfrewshire council leader Mark Macmillan said: "We are delighted to be able to bring this prestigious sporting event to Renfrewshire. We have a vibrant cycling scene locally and I am sure cycling fans from Renfrewshire and beyond will be thrilled to get the chance to see the sport's stars of tomorrow compete up close.

 “Renfrewshire is fast gaining a reputation as a venue for top-class events and I am sure the historic town centre of Paisley will provide a striking backdrop to the excitement on the roads."

Organiser, Kenny Steele said: “It is fantastic to bring the British Cycling National Youth Championships to Paisley Town Centre. There are over 200 members of Youth Cycling Clubs within a five-mile radius of the circuit and it’s testament to the growth of cycling in the area that Renfrewshire Council has continued with their commitment to bringing high level racing to the town. The organising group of Paisley 2015 look forward to welcoming all to Paisley in July."

Go-Ride in Scotland

What is Go-Ride?

Go-Ride is Scottish Cycling's Club Development Programme aimed at improving both young riders and clubs. It focuses on volunteers and young members - improving coaching standards and increasing the number of young riders with access to coaching activities.

Go-Ride supports the creation of school-club links, which helps provide clubs with a constant influx of new young members and helps everyone work towards our shared vision of more young people, more active, more often in cycling.

The success of Go-Ride is dependent upon partnerships between Scottish Cycling, clubs, schools, local authorities and voluntary organisations Further details on Go-Ride
