Easter Holiday Camps

Over the Easter holidays we’re once again running some cycling camps, but this time with some very exciting new additions. The most exciting piece of news is a new venue. We’ll be running a new look MTB camp from Worksop collage, the best part is we’re not just limited to the school grounds, our coaches will be taking the group off site onto the trails that surround the collage. We’re also running a special circuit race masterclass session, where our coaches will be joined by former national champion, Joey Walker. This will be a fantastic opportunity for aspiring racers to learn from the best. You can read more detail on each camp below.

Where? 

This Easter we’re running camps from multiple venues. We’ll be running pedal, learn & accelerate classes from Doncaster Dome Cycle Track, (Bawtry Rd, Doncaster DN4 7PD) along with our brilliant Joey Walker circuit race Masterclass..
We’ll also be running pedal camps from the wonderful and extensive grounds at Ranby house school (Straight Mile, Ranby, Retford DN22 8HX), here we’ll make the most of their mix of grassy playing fields and extensive woodland single-track trails to ensure youngsters have a fantastic day on their bikes.
Finally, we’ll also be running a MTB session from the grounds of Worksop college (Cuthbert's Avenue, Worksop S80 3AP), with the added bonus of being able to take riders off site to explore the trails and woodland that surround the site & form part of Clumber Park.

Joey Walker Race Masterclass

Our race masterclass session is the ultimate for young racers ages 10-16. sessions will be comprised of all the elements needed for riders to succeed at a National level. We’ll leave no stone unturned with activities covering warmup protocols, cornering, sprinting, climbing/descending, off the bike S&C movements & race tactics just to name a few.
This Easter we’ll be joined at this session by none other than former national circuit race champion & expert coach Joey Walker.
Additionally, we’ll be taking the competitive scenarios to a new level, with coach led racing, national length races, multiple stages & we’ll be including intermediate competitions + time bonus sprints as to add a new dimension to the tactics required.
We’ll start off in the morning focusing mainly on improving our fundamental racing skills e.g. cornering, group riding etc. Then in the afternoon we’ll include the main coach led racing and put the skills we’ve learned earlier in the day to the test – don’t think the afternoon is all about racing though, in-between the competition we’ll continue the learning by including mini workshops on warmups, feedback, tactics etc.
Our ex-professional coaches will lead this session, so youngsters will get a chance to learn from some of the best. Spending the day with us means that children get to develop new racing skills, build further on their existing ones & explore all aspects of circuit racing.

 Our Easter Race Masterclass takes place on Thursday 14/04/22 at the Doncaster Dome cycle track. From 09:30-15:30 The price is £40 per person. Book here.

MTB Masterclass Session

Our MTB Masterclass session this Easter will take place at an all new venue, the impressive Worksop College. Even more excitingly we’ll be taking the skills we learn in the morning out onto the trails & heading off site in the afternoon. Led by our expert coaches, we’ll start the day onsite using a mix of the natural terrain, woodland & our ramps/kit to work on some key skills and develop off-road techniques.
Think bunny-hops, manuals, wheelies, weight distribution, cornering, gear selection, starts, etc. Our ramps and see-saws are brilliant for testing out & the riders balance and weight distribution in a fun engaging way. We’ll also create some competitive scenarios and see how our skills stand up under the pressure of race conditions.
Then after a short break for a packed lunch, we’ll move offsite by riding straight onto the trails and tracks that run directly from the back of the college and extend into Clumber & Sherwood forests. This will give us the opportunity to put the newly acquired skills to the test and develop them further over a wider range of terrain in the real world.

Our MTB Masterclass session will take place on Wednesday 13/04/22, at Worksop College Cuthbert's Avenue, Worksop S80 3AP. The price is £40 per person. Book here.
