PTW Youth and Adult Training Sessions

We run a series of evening “Port Talbot Wheelers Skills Coaching Sessions" every fortnight on Friday nights based for children aged 6 to 14, and for juveniles aged 15 and above all the way up to adult.


Youth Sessions

The sessions are held back at the Taibach CEC Sports activity Barn adjacent to our club house in Duke Street, Taibach at 7pm for the Juniors now the nights are drawing in.

Parents/guardians (or grandparents) can come along to the club on a Friday night and have a cup of tea and a chat whilst the kids take part in the one hour sessions.

All our training sessions are run by British Cycling accredited coaches

The sessions are run under British Cycling’s Coaching system and involve carrying out a series of skills activities in a Traffic Free controlled environment. The sessions teach the necessary skills to make riders more competent, safer cyclists.

Initially the plan was for each rider to take part in a series of 6 sessions held every other week commencing on May 3rd 2013.  (On completion of the 6 consecutive sessions riders received a certificate and new junior members gained free membership to British Cycling for one year) The hope that this is the first of many events that will hopefully progress to accompanied rides along the various cycle paths in the area.

The initial 6 weeks course having proved successful has now continued. It has been expanded to include juvenile and adult members who may find the courses useful to improve their bike handling and group riding skills.

Rules are kept to a minimum but some things we have to insist on.


  •        Each session will be limited to around 12 riders.
  •        Each rider to provide his/her own bike.
  •        Bikes to be in a roadworthy condition.
  •        Helmets are compulsory.
  •        Attached parental consent form must be completed before the first session (See Attached).
  •        The children will need to become members of the club. (See attached membership form)


Dates of the Sessions: Fortnightly.
