2 Spirit of the Games: Excellence through competition how does your sport exemplify these values? is in the middle of an unprecedented boom as the high profile success of Great Britain s elite athletes continues to inspire greater participation across all of its unique disciplines. At all levels, from Go-Ride skills sessions to elite competition, enthusiasm and passion is the key to achieving personal best. It s a challenge to do well at all of the different Go-Ride Racing disciplines and skills challenges with each individual having their preferred race or activity. Everyone should respect the different skill levels of each rider. Volunteers are fundamental in the organisation and running of cycle races, and therefore it is essential that riders also respect and appreciate their contribution. Cycle sport is highly competitive and winning margins can be very small. It s important to play by the rules and maintain fair play and support race officials and organisers in their roles. In all cycling events it is important to have confidence in yourself and in the abilities of your team. Practice and preparation is key to a good performance. Supporting your team-mates and believing in yourself will ensure personal best results. What are the benefits of playing your sport? It is widely acknowledged that cycling is one of the best ways for people to achieve good health and fitness. If you want to get into cycling, there are plenty of ways into the sport. British s Go-Ride programme offers a number of programmes designed to introduce young people to the sport or further their talent. It provides a fun and safe way to introduce young riders to the world of cycle sport and is a platform for them to improve bike handling skills. Why is it easy to run competitions in your sport? A discipline generic version of Go-Ride Racing can be delivered by school staff using existing school sports equipment on areas such as playing fields, playgrounds or car park areas. Any bike can be used as the competitions do not rely on discipline specific bikes or equipment. Priority competitions: Name of the competition: Who can run it? When does it take place? Next steps after this competition: Go-Ride School Games KS2 Go-Ride and Run, Go-Ride Skills, Go-Ride Circuit Relay KS3 Go-Ride & Run, Go-Ride Relay, Go-Ride Team Pursuit KS4 Go-Ride Racing (suitable as a standalone event for KS2 and 3 with experience of KS2 and 3 activity first) All racing is open to male and female competitors and races can be organised by teachers and other school staff on school playing fields, playgrounds, inside sports halls right through to national and international cycling specific venues there is something for all abilities and age groups. The Go-Ride School Games Primary and Secondary Intra resource cards can be used as guidance for setting up these competitions. Races can take place during or after school all year round. The above formats are not cycling discipline specific and any type of bike in good working order can be used. School staff should however complete a simple bike and helmet safety check before School Games delivery. Racing is available for novice under 16 riders through British s Go-Ride Racing Programme. All competition formats are open to male and female competitors. Go-Ride Racing is linked into the six cycling disciplines but discipline facility specific venues and discipline specific bikes are not required. This can lead to regional and national level competition organised through the National Governing Body. Events at this level will be discipline specific and young riders compete within two year age bandings starting at under 8 s through to under 16 s on discipline specific bikes. The six cycling disciplines are BMX, Cycle Speedway, Cyclo-Cross, Mountain Bike, Road and Track.

3 Squash Many disciplines in cycling involve riders working as a team, as a collective group or as individuals earning points for their team. Working together for a common goal is the essence of any form of team event both against the clock and against an opposing team. Good communication and a positive team attitude are essential. Competing in cycle sport can be very challenging. However working hard, ensuring plenty of practice with good preparation will help a determined rider reach their personal best. Young Leader/Officials courses/qualifications available: Award for Young Volunteers based on volunteer hours completed both in schools and community settings. This is available for 14 to 18 year olds. Racemakers British s Inspire Marked Young Officials programme. This is available for 14 to 18 year olds. Level 1 Award in Coaching is the entry level award in British s Coach Education Programme and is open to those 16 and over. Signposted competitions: Go-Ride Racing Go-Ride Racing is British s exciting entry level competition programme which offers local competition for novice cyclists under the age of 16, helping young people make a gradual transition into competitive cycling. A British racing license is NOT required and the events are strictly aimed at novice racing cyclists. All events are open to male and female competitors with age and ability taken into consideration when grouping riders together. Once riders have grown in confidence and experienced success at Go-Ride Racing level, with advice and support, progression to open regional competition is actively encouraged. Go-Ride Racing acts as a stepping stone and the progression into open regional competition. Go-Ride Racing maintains the best possible competitive experience for the constant influx of new riders starting out at Go-Ride Racing level. Go-Ride Racing can be delivered by schools, community cycling clubs and through British alongside major events such as the Tour of Britain, Olympic Test Events, mass cycling participation events and other regional and nationally organised races. Schools and community cycling clubs can promote their events through the British events calendar. Go-Ride Racing can be delivered at county level and those wanting to progress would be signposted into regional and national competition. All regional and national races across the six cycling disciplines are promoted through the British events calendar. British Membership:

4 Competition Card 1. Go-Ride and Run Create teams of four, mixed ability, boys and girls. Go-Ride and Run involves two teams racing both on the bike and on foot against each other. Team-mates pair up to cover a set distance (one on a bike and one running) swap roles and race back to the starting point. Riders perform a quick safety bike and helmet check at each end before swapping roles. On Go the riders should complete their bike and helmet safety check, race the straight of the course, stop, turn the bikes around and hold the bikes ready for the runners to complete their safety check then race back. Teams can race against each other or against the clock to determine 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc and secure points to take forward to the Go-Ride Circuit Relay. KS2 local SGO and British s Award for Young Volunteers workshops provide young people with British Membership: Schools can deliver Go-Ride and Run as one element of the three School Games competition cards to support a series of events/league formats. Each challenge is designed to build skills and confidence so working with this format can enable children to progress on a pathway through each level. Go-Ride and Run races are short in duration, so there is more time available for several teams to take part and represent their school. SEN/disabled riders can use, tricycles, handcycles and tandem cycles SEN/disabled riders can compete on foot or in wheelchairs and do not have to swap with their cycling team-mates if they are unable to ride. Visually impaired young people can compete on a tandem cycle or with a sighted runner. If appropriate run the competition on a hard surface when including SEN/disabled riders. If appropriate set a shorter course alongside the main course for SEN/disabled riders. Go-Ride and Run is one element of the challenges available. For those teams or individuals that become competent across the Intra school challenge cards, the opportunity to take part in Go-Ride Racing events at Level 3 could be available which will be discipline specific racing. The school games cycling challenges build to provide the necessary skills to be able to take part at Level 3. County Festival events can be delivered as Go-Ride Racing events or young people can be signposted to regional competition.

5 Competition Card 2. Go-Ride Skills Create teams of four, mixed ability, boys and girls. Set up a simple slalom along the length of the two straights of the circuit. With teams of four each team has to decide which rider will perform one of four skills challenges as part of a relay; one foot scooting, saddle push, bike push, two foot scooting. On Go the first rider completes their skill challenge in one direction and rides back to the start, tagging the second rider to perform their challenge and so on. Teams can race against each other or against the clock to determine 1st, 2nd, 3rd and secure appropriate points to take forward to the Go-Ride Circuit Relay. KS2 local SGO and British s Award for Young Volunteers workshops provide young people with British Membership: Schools can deliver Go-Ride Skills as one element of the three School Games challenge cards to support a series of events/league formats. Each challenge is designed to build skills and confidence so working with this format can enable children to progress on a pathway through each level. Go-Ride Skills can cater for riders with strengths in different areas. Each team can decide which of the four skills most suits their ability to achieve a better team performance. Schools can enter a number of mixed ability teams which will cater for riders of different abilities. If appropriate set a shorter course alongside the main course for SEN/disabled riders Create personalised skills challenges for SEN/disabled riders e.g. a tandem cyclist may try to cycle with only one hand on the handle bar Wheelchair users can compete in wheelchairs and perform personalised challenges e.g. perform a 360 turn around one of the cones. Go-Ride Skills is one element of the challenges available. For those teams or individuals that become competent across the challenge cards the opportunity to take part in Go-Ride Racing events at Level 3 could be available which will be discipline specific racing. The School Games cycling challenges build to provide the necessary skills to be able to take part at Level 3. County Festival events can be delivered as Go-Ride Racing events or children can be signposted to regional competition.

6 Competition Card 3. Go-Ride Circuit Relay Create teams of four, mixed ability, boys and girls. Go-Ride Circuit Relay involves two, three or four teams of riders racing each other on a marked circuit as a relay race starting at one side of the track. Each rider covers one lap and pulls off into the centre of the track with their team-mate taking on the next leg of the race. It s the team that completes all their laps first which takes the win. Starting positions of each team s first rider will be staggered depending on points gained from competition cards one and two. Go-Ride Circuit Relay can also be run as a standalone activity. KS2 local SGO and British s Award for Young Volunteers workshops provide young people with British Membership: Schools can deliver Go-Ride Circuit Relay as one element of the three School Games challenge cards to support a series of events/ league formats. Each challenge is designed to build skills and confidence so working with this format can enable children to progress on a pathway through each level. Although Go-Ride Circuit Relay is a standalone event, it can be delivered following other Level 2 challenges. Ability teams can be identified based on performances in other challenges and potentially via peer review. This is a fun competitive race in which multiple teams of mixed ability riders from each school can take part. If appropriate set a shorter course alongside the main course for SEN/disabled riders. Visually impaired young people can compete on a tandem cycle. If appropriate, run the competition on a hard surface when including SEN/ disabled athletes. Go-Ride Circuit Relay is one element of the challenges available. For those teams or individuals that become competent across the challenge cards the opportunity to take part in Go-Ride Racing events at Level 3 could be available which will be discipline specific racing. The School Games cycling challenges build to provide the necessary skills to be able to take part at Level 3. County Festival events can be delivered as Go-Ride Racing events or children can be signposted to regional competition.

7 Competition Card 4. Go-Ride Team Pursuit Create teams of four, mixed ability, boys and girls. Set the number of laps to be completed. Races should last no longer than ten minutes. Judges should be placed on each start finish line to ensure fair play. There should be equal teams of riders (usually four) on each side of the track (home and back straight). Each team chases their opponents and are timed over a set number of laps. The fastest team wins based on the time of the fourth rider across the finish line. If one team catches the other the race is over. KS3 local SGO and British s Award for Young Volunteers workshops provide young people with British Membership: Schools can deliver Go-Ride Team Pursuit through a series of event/league formats in year groups. Team performances in terms of time to complete a set amount of laps can be recorded enabling league tables of individual team performances to be recorded. The pursuit formats lend themselves to time trials. Teams can be based on a mixture of rider skill levels and recorded times taken to complete laps of the circuit can determine B, C and D teams. SEN/disabled riders can use tricycles, handcycles and tandem cycles. If appropriate set a shorter course alongside the main course for SEN/disabled riders. If appropriate, run the competition on a hard surface when including SEN/ disabled athletes. Once riders have competed at intra and inter school level they can progress to Level 3 in the form of Go-Ride Racing events at regional/ county level competition. County Festival events can be delivered as Go-Ride Racing events or children can be signposted to regional competition.

8 Competition Card 5. Go-Ride Relay Create teams of up to four, mixed ability, boys and girls. Set the length of the race (based on the number of riders in the team). Races should last no longer than 10 minutes. Place a judge on the start and finish line which should be far enough apart to allow the teams to line up between the two. Line up all the teams behind the start line. Blow a whistle to start the race. The first rider from each team rides one lap of the course, dismounts and runs with the bike to the last team member in the line and tags them. Each team member tags the rider in front and when the next rider to start the lap is tagged, they go! When the final rider is on their last lap the others should move into the centre of the track to cheer on the sprint finish. The final last lap riders do not have to dismount they simply race to the finish line. KS3 local SGO and British s Award for Young Volunteers workshops provide young people with British Membership: Schools can deliver Go-Ride Relay through a series of event/league formats in year groups. The Go-Ride Relay format enables teams of mixed ability to compete against each other, enabling schools to enter more than one team in an event. However Individual Time Trials can be used to categorise riders into similar ability A, B, C or D teams. SEN/disabled riders can use tricycles, handcycles and tandem cycles. If appropriate, run the competition on a hard surface when including SEN/ disabled athletes. Once riders have competed at intra and inter school level they can progress to Level 3 in the form of Go-Ride Racing events at regional/ county level competition. County Festival events can be delivered as Go-Ride Racing events or children can be signposted to regional competition.

9 Competition Card 6. Go-Ride and Run Set the number of laps (start line to bike swap and return). Place a judge on each end of the straight for each team. Ask the runners to hold up the first set of rider team-mates on each start line. The fastest team to complete wins or you can time each team if you have more than two teams taking part. The winners are then the fastest team to complete. The two riders in each team have to wait for one another at each of the standing starts and ride together. You can have any size teams as long as there is an even number of competitors. Try to create mixed ability teams with boys and girls competing on the same team. Riders must have their feet on both pedals when being held up by the runners and can only start when all their teams riders are ready to go. The team finishes when all riders and runners complete the course. KS3 local SGO and British s Award for Young Volunteers workshops provide young people with British Membership: Schools can deliver Go-Ride and Run through a series of event/league formats in year groups. Go-Ride and Run races are short in duration, so there is more time available for several teams to take part. Create personalised skills challenges for SEN/disabled riders e.g. a tandem cyclist may try to cycle with only one hand on the handle bar. Wheelchair users can compete in wheelchairs and perform personalised challenges e.g. perform a 360 turn around one of the cones. Once riders have competed at intra and inter school level they can progress to Level 3 in the form of Go-Ride Racing events at regional/county level competition. County Festival events can be delivered as Go-Ride Racing events or children can be signposted to regional competition.

10 Competition Card 7. Go-Ride Racing All Terrain Cross-Country Time Trial (TT) Riders are timed while completing one lap of the course as fast as they can. Riders can be set off at intervals i.e. every 30/60 seconds. Their times can be used to determine a gridded start line for a mass start race. A time trial format gives riders the opportunity to gain confidence on the course and prepare for the mass start races. Start with the younger age groups and set riders off at 30 second intervals. Each rider should have the opportunity to compete in at least two races per event/session. Key stage 2, 3 and 4 Although individuals race against one another, the position they finish in the race will attract points. The individual members of the team should have their points added together to determine the overall winning team/school. a standalone competition or a local school cluster league with riders of the same year/ and away format or at a central school playing field, playground free space would be suitable, especially if riders were just being introduced to all terrain riding. Courses should include right and left turns gradients and a mixture of terrain, ensure a lap format which should take an average ability rider about three minutes to complete. Use multiple laps depending on age and ability. Cross-Country Short-Track Group the competitors depending on how many riders are entered in each category (different age categories can race together if appropriate). Decide how many laps each age group will complete by referring to previous time trial results (based on the time required to complete a lap of the course). If numbers are big enough, start each age group at a different time so riders can cheer each other on. Start with the younger age groups and set riders off at 30 second intervals. Each rider should have the opportunity to compete in at least two races per event/session. Cross-Country Staggered Start Race Group the riders from the results of the time trial together. Set the riders off at staggered intervals with the faster riders setting off last. This staggered start format often produces a close finish, adding to the excitement of the event. Cross-Country Team Relay Teams of at least two mixed ability riders. Group riders into small groups of mixed ability (older with younger riders). Each rider should complete one lap of the course so the number of laps will be determined by the number in a team. Mark out a holding area (change over area) near the finish line. Mark out a dismount line before the change over area to slow riders down. Top Tip Make a simple change to fully utilise the course by racing the opposite way around. Inter school leagues can be created to enable riders to regularly compete against each other and see an improvement in their bike handling and racing skills. Races can also be organised during PE lessons as part of the curriculum or as an after school activity throughout the school term. The entry level nature of Go-Ride Racing enables novice riders to compete against others of the same age and ability by forming B,C,D teams SEN/disabled riders can use tricycles, handcycles and tandem cycles If appropriate, run the competition on a hard surface, and set a shorter course when including SEN/disabled athletes Go-Ride Racing at inter school level prepares riders to develop and progress through the youth competition pathway into regional and county level competition. County Festival events can be delivered as Go-Ride Racing events or children can be signposted to regional competition.
