We are arranging two 4-hour quality group riding coaching sessions for FCCC Members (and guests) on the Hillingdon Race Circuit. The aim is to to help you get even more enjoyment out of your riding.

Each session will be led by one or both of our Qualified Road Coaches – Laurie Pestana and Nigel Fletcher.

NOTE: They are being designed to cater for all riders and abilities – not just those wanting to race so we will be grouping riders accordingly to their ability and comfortable speed(s).

It is on a race circuit to coach our riders when there are no cars around. FCCC has the course to itself for the four hours.

We will need you to register for this event to create a list of attendees in the coming few weeks so that we start to organise the ride groups.

Refreshments will be provided. There will be a small charge for the event.

More details will be posted to members shortly.

Kids Coaching – Places Available

Farnborough and Camberley Cycling Club (“FCCC”) is pleased to be able to offer kids aged 5 to 12 places on our British Cycling Go-Ride coaching scheme for junior riders known as the ‘FCCC Flyers’.

Our next set of sessions start on 11 June 2022.

We provide weekly hour-long classes that are fun and informative, teaching children to progress from the earlier stages of riding through to skilled riders via our programme of classes run by British Cycling fully qualified coaches.

At FCCC Flyers your children’s safety and welfare is our primary concern while we teach them not only how to ride safely but also with confidence.

The sessions run every Saturday from 1pm to 2pm at Rushmoor Borough’s Recreation Ground at Moor Road, Farnborough, GU14 8HW, where we use a combination of tarmac and grass surfaces together with the use of a small Pump Track to run the sessions.

The cost is £30 for a block of six lessons. For a block booking for two children we offer a discount (£50 instead of the usual £60).

We are a non-profit cycling club, and all money raised goes towards promoting cycling activities in the local area.

Some feedback from our Facebook page on recent sessions:

Andria – ‘The FCCC Flyer Kids were out giving it their all…learning…improving and having a wonderful time, well done.

Dave H – ‘My daughter’s riding has improved astronomically because of these courses.’

For more information see our PDF download and fccc.org.uk/kids/
