Chapter II Youth Cycling
Chapter 2 Youth Cycling is a North Birmingham cycling group of all ages, aiming to spread their passion for cycling. Chapter 2 aims to teach good road safety to children and young people, and raise engagement of the sport in their local area.
What is Chapter 2 Youth Cycling?
Chapter 2 Youth Cycling creates a safe space for children and young people to ride their road bikes in a casual and non-competitive environment. Founded by a professional racer, Kelly Murphy, the group was formed as a way to give back to the sport, and has since gone from strength to strength. Chapter 2 holds four bike rides every Saturday, each catering for all ages and abilities. Three of the rides are based on slow, medium and fast paced road routes, and the fourth is a family ride, which takes place within the safe confines of the beautiful Sutton Park.
The key aim of the group is to teach road safety and etiquette, to ensure attendees can enjoy the sport without any risk of harm to themselves or others, to understand bike maintenance and, most of all, to get outside and stay fit and healthy whilst having fun!
If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?
With the £2,000 funding, Chapter 2 Youth would be able to expand and get more people qualified to coach and help their new youth riders. The organisation will improve their safety measures by investing in first aid training for 10-15 of their key members and be able to provide additional resources, such as spare bikes and personal insurance. To allow the group to be more inclusive of underprivileged children, to get them into the sport and develop their ability and confidence.
