The Dorking Raiders is Dorking Cycling Club's own coaching squad for junior riders.
The Raiders meet weekly at The Priory School (drive down Longfield Road to the end), Dorking and caters for children of the ages 5 - 15 years. Please see the table to the right for dates and times of the raiders sessions.
If your child would like to receive coaching with the Raiders they will need a bike, any bike, but in working order, a helmet, clothing with no flappy parts on the lower leg that can get snagged by the chain/pedals, mitts (preferably) to protect your hands, a parental consent form (available on the day) and a few coins - the charge is £4 per session to cover our costs but the figure drops to £3 per session if you come by bike rather than by car. But your first session is free.
The Raiders are run by a subcommittee under Dorking Cycling Club and the coaches are organised by Head Coach Graham Baker taking over from John Leitch - a British Cycling Level 3 Club Coach who formed this junior cycle squad to teach youngsters in the schools in this area who want to improve their skills on a bike. He is supported by a number of other British Cycling coaches and trainee coaches.
By meeting and riding in a space that is free from traffic, we offer kids the chance to work on bike handling skills.
But most of all, to have fun!!
