Youth

The Mid Devon has its own youth coaching group – Mid-Devon Youth. We are a Go Ride and Club Mark accredited club. We cater for riders aged 8– 16 years old. Our purpose is to encourage young people to take up cycling, learn the basic skills of bike handling and control, and progress through to bike racing and tactical knowledge.
