A JUNIOR cycling club has moved to a new training base.

Bronte Tykes, formerly at Oakbank in Keighley, have moved across the town to University Academy Keighley (UAK).

Over 25 youngsters attended the first session at the new home.

"The facilities at UAK are second to none," said club coach Peter Charlton.

"They provide a mix of hard and soft-surface training and there is the opportunity to use Cliffe Castle Park as a cyclo-cross-specific training area as well."

The club has continued to grow since it was formed last year as the junior section of Bronte Wheelers.

Catering for youngsters aged four to 16, sessions are held at UAK from 11am to 12.30pm every Saturday and at Marley stadium from 6.30pm to 7.30pm on Mondays.

The cost is £2 per session.

This Saturday (June 20) the club is hosting a Go Ride event at UAK. Registration is from 9am with racing, for those who want to take part, from 10am. Entry is payable on the day.

Mr Charlton added: "We knew after the Tour de France and Tour de Yorkshire that there was a real need to use that momentum and help children who have been inspired by those races take the next step in cycling.

"We teach them riding and race skills and have had notable success in races, from under-eights up to under-14s, already.

"The younger children love to ride and love to race. It's a great club to be part of."
