DMRC Achieve Go-Ride CLUBMARK Status

 

Derby Mercury Celebrate Achieving Go-Ride Clubmark Status

Thursday 15 October 2015

Joining a select group of cycling clubs across the country, Derby Mercury RC has fulfilled the necessary criteria to achieve British Cycling’s Go-Ride Clubmark status and now holds this prestigious accreditation. Clubmark is a universally acknowledged cross sport scheme introduced by Sport England for community sports clubs which recognises high standards in welfare, equity, coaching and club management.

Clubs are required to submit a portfolio of evidence to show that they meet the relevant criteria, including suitably qualified volunteers, regular coaching sessions and club development plans. Throughout the application process, Derby Mercury demonstrated an environment that ensures member welfare and promotes cycling as a lifelong sport.

First launched in 1938 Derby Mercury RC now has a thriving membership of 454. Coaches hold sessions at the Derby Arena and Alvaston Park which offers young riders an ideal traffic free cycling venue, an opportunity to improve bike handling skills and a pathway into cycle sport.

Anthony Gill, British Cycling Regional Development Manager for the East Midlands said of the achievement: “My congratulations go out to Derby Mercury on achieving Go-Ride Clubmark status. The coaches and volunteers work extremely hard to provide opportunities for young people to get involved in cycling, and I look forward to continue supporting them in the future as I’m sure that the club will go on to do great things."

Sessions at Derby Mercury run every Wednesday evening and new riders are more than welcome to turn up and have a go.
