East Bradford Cycling Club – About
East Bradford Cycling Club is over 100 years old but is certainly not stuck in the dark ages. Set up initially with time trials as it’s main interest, it has now developed through the kids section into a vibrant and up to date club, with particular emphasis on developing young cyclists from riding without stabilisers to competing in national competitions.
The Adults section of EBCC continues to attract new members, especially parents of the kids club, but all are welcome. We run a series of 10 Time Trials in early summer, two club championship events (1 is a handicap event) in April and September and a Hill Climb in October each year. We also organise Sunday social rides and Tuesday evening adult rides.As a member of EBCC you can ride open time trial events run by other clubs (see the CTT website for details). Members also arrange rides between themselves.
This summer the female coaches are delivering weekly coaching sessions on a Thursday evening at Richard Dunn Sports Centre, 6.30 till 8pm, (womens wobblers and wheelers) See Women’s Section
All ladies, over 12, so young and old, confident or not are welcome to come along for skills, fitness and a laugh!Youth development:
The main sessions are at the Richard Dunn Sports Centre in Bradford, partly on our all weather pitches for skills and also on our custom built traffic free 1 km road circuit. Ages range from approx three to sixteen.
Running most Saturday mornings all year round from 10:30am to 12:30 if good weather and under the overhang in bad weather, we can offer something for all.
In addition there are sessions on an evening with club runs in MTB, Cyclo-Cross and Road also organised and roller/turbo training in winter. There are occasional family rides for the very young ones on traffic free routes and twice yearly youth hostel trips.
The Cost is £5 on your first visit to cover registration and the session. The membership is renewable in December each year.(If you join after October/November your membership will be for 14 or 13 months respectively). After the first week, the session fee is £3.50 a week for the first child and £2.50 for any subsequent siblings .The road training has seen a huge increase in interest and we regularly train 25 plus kids in all road skills from Bikeability to race skills with similar numbers on the pitches. Often with guests from other clubs who are welcome to join in.
We also have a very active competition section with many of our members from childrten to adults racing road, mountainbike, track and cyclo-cross.
