Most Saturdays of the year excluding public holidays (check the website for
times) RBCC dedicates one hour of our Heffron Park track hire to junior
cyclists. Ages range from 6 to 15yrs and all levels are welcome. Under the
watchful eye of our Junior Sub-Committee, including Junior Development Co-ordinator
Flavio Roncolato. Assisting Flavio is ex European professional rider, Willem ter Avest and Level
2 coach Margaret Horne. The RBCC kids (and other clubs’ junior members)
go through a relaxed and fun session focused on improving cycling skills,
fitness and some racing. The session lasts about an hour and afterwards they
can watch the senior groups fight it out racing the very same track they had
just tested their own skills on. Come to the Club, introduce yourself and
have a look.
The child must be of an age, skill and confidence level to be able to ride
without assistance and complete a lap of the Heffron Park criterion circuit
on their own.
Once you have decided, or your child has decided for you you, will need to
join the Club. Cycling NSW does require that the participant have a racing
license. However this can be done on the day.
The club heavily subsidises uniform cost so that a club jersey can be
purchased for half normal retail price. We ask that all junior
competitors compete in their club uniform.
Helmet - A good quality helmet that meets Australian Standards.
Shoes - Fully enclosed shoes (training shoes are fine)
Bicycle - You are encouraged to bring a bicycle that your child prefers to
ride. The club does have a small number of bicycles for the
juniors to use on a short term basis to familarise themselves with a road
bike, until such time as they get their own.
