Welcome to Stepping Stanes Youth Cycling Club.


Stepping Stanes is a youth cycle coaching club based in Dumfries, Scotland. We run cycle coaching designed for young riders age. 8-12. Our aim is to improve bike skills within a safe and fun environment. When we decided to set the age range at 8 - 12 it was so that there would not be too much disparity in abilities. We hope that once the club is more established again and we have more people trained as coaches then we will be able to lower the age range to cater for younger riders.


If you want to come along and try a couple of sessions please contact our chairperson Fiona Walker (fiona.walker@scottishcycling.org )  before attending.


We will be meeting at the David Keswick Centre every Wednesday starting at  6pm to 7.30 (we meet down on the athletics track). This is a great facility and we can continue our coaching over the winter months. The David Keswick centre do charge us for the use of the athletics track so there will be a cost of £2 per rider. 


Our facebook group is now up and running. Find us at "steppingstanes" and click to join our group. We will use this to help communicate and its a way for you to tell us what your kids like best at our sessions.

Session as usual this week. 


There will  be a practise at Ae "event field" to let any steppingstanes riders have a shot at the course for the followings weeks race.

Also if there are any young or old ladies who would like a practise to see if they want to enter the special ladies only race then please feel free to come along as well. The course is classed as dirt crit so more suited to mountain bikes.

Coaches will be there from 10 to 11.30 on Sunday 8th March so drop by anytime.
