Youth development and fun

Zappi's is the only Continental Racing team club in the UK with a youth development programme.  Our aim is to help youngsters build their skills, starting with fun development sessions all the way through to group racing, performance develpoment and the podium. In 2015 Zappi's had three British Schools Cycling Association national champions and two more top four, putting the club in the top position. Whether you want to race to win or for just for fun we hope to develop a life-long love for cycling and to help riders to build their fitness and confidence on a bike.

Come along and try it.  You get fit, make friends, have fun and you can even try racing if you want.  Training sessions are free to club members.

Zappi's Youth welcomes young riders to the club, whether you are just developing your first off-road skills or wanting to race in Europe. We have a number of British Cycling L2 qualified coaches who balance fun with performance, from first corner skills up to group riding and race tactics.

Zappi's Youth provides a development pathway into the Women's, Junior and U23 Race teams.  In 2014 we selected and sponsored six riders to compete at national and international level, and in 2015 two riders went on to join the Wiggins Pro Team.
