A Cluster is a British Cycling idea to group Go-Ride clubs together to allow them access to facilities that they probably couldn’t afford or fully utilise on their own – there are clusters UK wide.

They are generally aimed at beginner or intermediate skill levels … definitely not advanced, aged 9 to 16.

The East Midlands track cluster 4 grouping includes:

Matlock CC


Rutland Rouleur


VC Lincoln


Other clubs may / will be invited to fill spaces if appropriate.

The wider East Midlands cluster includes all Go-ride clubs in the British Cycling East Midlands region. These kinds of activities lead to further opportunities such as Regional Schools of Racing, National Schools of Racing, etc. These sessions are only available to junior club members who are engaged in club Go-ride activities and regional track racing
