Juniors’ Section

Huddersfield Star Wheelers has an enthusiastic junior section which caters for young cyclists aged 6-18 years old. Go-Ride sessions are part of the British Cycling development programme for young people. This provides a fun, safe and traffic free way to introduce young riders to the world of cycle sport and is a great way improve bike handling skills.

Huddersfield Star Wheeler Juniors meet at Brooksbank Cycle Circuit near Elland on Saturdays. The session runs from 2.45pm – 4.30pm, cost £5 and offer a range of activities, including circuit, cyclo-cross and mountain bike coaching. If weather conditions are bad please check our Facebook page for cancellations.

The Go-Ride sessions are aimed at young people who can already ride a bicycle and have good co-ordination. Riders should wear a helmet at all times, have a well-maintained bicycle, a drink and bring appropriate clothing and gloves. Parents / carers must stay for the session. These sessions are led by qualified coaches who introduce riders to different forms of cycle sports and include some forms of racing.

There are lots of opportunities to take part in circuit and cyclo-cross races. Members who are nine years and above, can take part in regular Yorkshire Cluster Track Coaching sessions at Manchester Velodrome along with riders from other Go-Ride clubs. We can also nominate talented riders to take part in Regional School of Racing or RSR’s in Track, Road and MTB, these one day coaching sessions are led by British Cycling Coaches.

A number of British Cycling’s current gold medal athletes are ‘graduates’ of the Go-Ride scheme including Laura Trott who says “The Go-Ride programme is doing a brilliant job of harnessing the enthusiasm of young people and encouraging more youngsters to get involved. It really is going from strength to strength and it’s unbelievable to hear about the increasing numbers of young riders putting power to the pedals.”

The Doreen Miller Fund

Did you know that HSW will provide financial support for young riders racing in British Cycling or Cycling Time Trials National events?

Doreen Miller was a competitive cyclist who made her debut with the Huddersfield Star Wheelers in 1957. Doreen specialised in time trials, of varying lengths but 10 miles was her focus. Her achievements included beating Beryl Burton in one event, clocking up 15 miles in just 40 minutes to win. This was a stunning result, given that Beryl dominated women’s cycle racing in the UK at the time and won seven world titles.

Doreen sadly passed away in 2021 and the fund continues in her memory and in recognition of her achievements.

More details and eligibility criteria can be found here.
