SO HOW DID CHAPTER II START?
Chapter II was formed in October 2015 and was created to find a place for children, young riders and their parents to start cycling and develop further in a safe and friendly enviroment in an area currently unable to provide this platform for them. The aim was to firstly make people smile, secondly to be safe, and thirdly to allow young cyclists to not only achieve what they are naturally capable of, but experience the same things and have the same opportunities as the lucky couple of naturally talented, well supported younger riders who already have a foot in the door. It all started with a group of 10 or so of us on a Saturday morning group ride, and has now progressed to 50+ riders over 4 different groups, as well as other events and trips away and a race team!
We have already had some exciting progress from some of our individuals with massive development in a short time.
We are becoming very well recognised now within the larger cycling community and have been embraced by them for what we are trying to achieve, slowly developing into a very smart outfit. We have attracted professional riders that ride regularly at the club, Ex professionals and recreational riders that pride themselves on the smartness of the rides and are willing to give up their time to make all of our group ride roads very safe.
