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
