Summer coaching

Posted: Sun, 01 Sep 2019

Over the summer holidays, I helped with the British Cycling holiday activities. The first was a day at Derby Velodrome. The morning was spent outside, on road bikes in the car park, and the afternoon was spent on the track. This was the first time in a few years that I have helped at a track session (because I was only allowed to help before I completed my coaching course earlier this year). I really enjoyed helping the coach with the activities and getting more involved with the session than I previously could. I also helped at a closed road circuit in Nottingham. I coached the younger riders with the help of an assistant coach. In the morning, I focused on basic skills, such as cornering and riding one handed, and in the afternoon, I chose to do a series of fun games and races. All the riders really enjoyed it.
