Welcome to the ICC Youth/Junior Webpage
The aim of the youth section is to encourage children and young adults to take up cycling as a lifelong habit, and to encourage participation in competition across all cycling disciplines. We want cycling to be fun, safe and an integral part of the wider club. Read about our safeguarding policy here.
