British Cycling Level 2 coach - National Standards (bikeability) Instructor - First Aid - Child Protection - CRB verified.
With 10 years experience in the Sports Development and Coaching field Liz Foster has been blown away by the recent boom in cycling, not least because of the positive impact it has had on young people.
With her finger on the pulse, KJCC formed at just the right time to satisfy the demand created from the successes at the 2012 Tour de France and Olympics/Paralympics.
Liz comments she has yet to see a sport that brings young people together like that of cycling. KJCC has such a wide range of young people taking part weekly all with a common passion. From individual riding to team pursuits the communication, team work and camaraderie is second to none. See also www.lizfostersport.co.uk.
Coach Matt Foote has been involved with the Club since 2012, when he started to bring his son Michael down to ride on Saturday mornings. As well as being a British Cycling Level 2 coach, Matt has also gained the Level 2 Cyclo-Cross coaching award and will be running CX specific training and racing throughout the year, alongside regular cycling sessions.
Matt is a member of Kingston Wheelers, and enjoys cycling of all varieties, the muddier the better! Matt is also a fan of Harlequins rugby, often seen at home matches with Michael, and usually with a Quins water bottle on his bike.
KJCC welcomes our riders to take part in coaching also. The 'gang' as they are affectionately known coach both the gearers and the spokes. They are all linked in with British Cyclings Young Volunteer programme which is an excellent chance to build their leadership and communication skills in a practical environment. If you are aged 14years + speak to one of the coaches about volunteering.
