Youth Road & Time Trial

For obvious reasons youth riders do not race on the open roads but that does not mean that they cannot replicate the feats of their heroes on tarmac!

We are very fortunate in the region to have access to several closed-road circuits within an hour of Colchester (traffic permitting!) all of which host regular races and coaching sessions both at the weekend and during school holidays.

Lee Valley Velopark

Redbridge Cycling Circuit

Cyclopark, Gravesend

But most importantly, we have the imminent opening of the Northern Gateway Sports Park here in Colchester which will provide unrivaled access for the youth of the town and surrounding areas to both coaching and racing opportunities. Watch this space for updates over the coming weeks!

Colchester Rovers also run regular time trials on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer months, as well as the occasional weekend event. These are open to riders age 12 and above but will need to be ridden with a parent following (on a bike!) as they are on public roads, albeit very quiet ones. More details can be found on the main club page here. if you are interested in taking part in one of these events we would recommend speaking to one of the coaches beforehand, or email us at youthcycling@colchesterrovers.org.uk
