About

Lichfield City Cycling Club is a Go Ride accredited cycling club that embraces all cycling disciplines.

The club is active in bike racing and has an excellent record in success in Road, Cyclo-Cross, Mountain Bike and on the Track. Members of the club have won World Titles and have represented GB at various ages and levels.

The club has actively developed youth racing and has a number of highly skilled coaches dedicated to supporting young riders from the age of U8 to U16 racing.

The club is very proud of its association with our sponsor – Zipvit. The Pro Vision club kit is great quality and very popular and is available to members at discounted prices.

As well as a proven pedigree in racing the club actively encourages the social riders and has recently introduced rides and coaching aimed at female riders. The social Saturday Café ride attracts many riders and usually runs three groups aimed at different levels of ability / speed. All new comers are made very welcome by existing members.

The club committee meet once a month to discuss all current and development aspects of the club. The committee are always keen to hear members views and to gain help and support where required, particularly at race events at Curborough Sprint Course.

Coaching

Most coached sessions take part at the Curborough Sprint Circuit (WS13 8EJ) which is a safe closed race track at 1.4km long and fully visible from the start/finish line so fantastic for spectating.

No specific bike or equipment is needed to start with, all are welcome to give cycling a try whether you have a race bike or mountain bike, bring it along and see what we have to offer.

 Youth Coaching Objectives

  • To develop children with core bike skills with an emphasis on learning to train and enjoy riding. 
  • Encouraging riders to be confident enough to race.
