Scottish Cycling's Disability Cycling Festival

Save the date: October 12th and 13th 2012

Including British Cycling's CPD module "Coaching riders with a disability"

Scottish Cycling are still finalising the line up but would like everyone with an interest in coaching riders with a disability to pencil this into their diaries. 

There will be two days based around inclusive cycling at Lochore Meadows, Fife. There will be opportunities for riders of any ability to experience various forms of adapted cycle, network with clubs and groups from across the country and form the foundation of a more joined up approach to inclusive cycling.

Our outline plan for Friday includes: 

  • key note speakers (hopefully one with a fresh gold medal) 
  • an opportunity for riders with a disability to experience racing in a time trial format, 
  • coaches, riders and anyone else will be able to try out various forms of adapted cycle
  • the opportunity to network and share best practice.

Saturday will be a training day with coaches able to participate in British Cycling's Coaching Riders with a Disability workshop.

Please be aware there is likely to be a fee to attend each day.  However if you receive disability living allowance Friday's sessions will be free. 

For more information or to register your interest please email chris.bryant@scottishcycling.org.uk.

Remember, this event is for everyone. 

Key supporters include (in no specific order) Cycling Projects, Cycling Scotland, CTC (Bike Club), Scottish Disability Sport, Scottish Cycling, Capability Scotland, British Cycling and a multitude of other groups and charities.
