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 parituclar emphasis on developing young cyclists from riding without stabilisers to competing in national competitions.

Youth development:

It started with the Kids Saturday Bike Club set up by Mike Healey, who is still one of the key members and coaches. Now joined by several British Cycling coaches, the club offers a variety of training sessions for all disciplines form road, to MTB to track to cyclocross, turbo, rollers and beyond.


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 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.
