The Gold Coast Cycling Club is affiliated with Cycling Australia and has a long history of junior cycling development on the Gold Coast. Our junior members include those new to cycling through to national junior champions and record holders. Under the guidance of our Club coaches, we regularly conduct various programs for our juniors which include basic skills, bike handling and general training, through to specific goal training programs.
Road bike training for U9s to U17s is conducted throughout the year, from 4-5:30pm at the Gold Coast Cycling Centre in Nerang, Tuesdays and Thursdays. From October through to January, track training is also conducted at the same facility, from 4-5pm for novice junior riders and 5-7pm for more experienced juniors.
The Club is blessed to have access to the Gold Coast Cycling Centre which includes an outdoor velodrome and dedicated cycling (criterium) circuit, free of all traffic. This provides juniors (and adults alike) with a safe environment in which to develop their riding.
All our junior training sessions are held by qualified coaches under the direction of our Senior Coach, Malcolm Rae.
Newcomers are welcomed at any time accompanied by a parent and, after attending to some basic “duty of care” paperwork, can try out the sport on either their bike or one of the Club’s. The Club has a number of bikes to suit most junior riders which saves parents the cost of buying equipment before their child is committed to the sport. For all enquiries contact Malcolm Rae on 0411 647 592 with any enquiries relating to training or racing.
