The Cycle Coach is committed to providing the opportunity for everyone who wants to ride their bike and be involved in sport to be able to do so in a safe, accessible and supportive environment.
We want to ensure that everyone feels free to participate regardless of their age, ability, gender, disability, race, parental or marital status, religion or belief or sexual orientation.
British Cycling Guidelines for Coaching Cycling
The British Cycling Guidelines for Coaching Cycling have been developed to promote good practice and ensure all riders receive coaching that is safe, effective, enjoyable and challenging.
The Guidelines aim to:
- Provide guidance to cycle coaches regarding remit and health and safety issues that should be considered when conducting meaningful coaching sessions, or prescribing training for individual riders.
- assist venues and organisations in formulating their own relevant health and safety policies for conducting cycle coaching sessions.
Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy
The welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone involved with The Cycle Coach from coaches, employees, volunteers, parents/carers and the children themselves can help. All these people have a duty of care to safeguard the welfare of children and prevent abuse.
We will actively encourage and promote the British Cycling Safeguarding Policy and good practice guidance to all involved with The Cycle Coach activities.
British Cycling Code of Conduct
This document offers guidance on good practice, values and behaviours for everyone involved in the sport of cycling, whether they be staff, members, coaches, race officials, member club officials or volunteers
