What They Say
I want to congratulate you on the coaching sessions you have provided to so many young people from across Dorset and beyond. I also wanted to thank you for all your support and advice since we have been coming along to your sessions, nothing ever seems too much trouble, and it is amazing to me how you remember everyone and all their names!
As newcomers to cycling you have been so encouraging and informative at every event, and it is so lovely to see how it is inspiring all those that attend. Everyone who I have witnessed attending your sessions both participants and parents alike have been so impressed, and full of praise for what the sessions are giving the young people involved. Thanks for your advice with regards to a track bike purchase, looking forward to next year and your future sessions.

We came to the kids coaching session at Bournemouth Cycling Centre on Saturday. Many thanks… Amy still has a huge smile on her face after her first track bike experience!

Just to let you know Izzy really enjoyed Monday's session and will be back next Monday for more.
Just to say thank you for another Monday session and, wow! How do you cope with 50 children?! Great to see such an interest and it was impressive how you managed to keep them interested and involved.
Thanks a lot for today. I realise how difficult it must have been with such a large turnout. However, it totally blew Tabatha away and she can't wait to get on the track again.
The "Girls on Track" sessions are an excellent development and good luck with it. I'm a great advocate of any cycling 'Girl Power' as you can imagine!

Although Caitlin could only manage two of the first series she had a really great time at both. The gesture at the end of the last one with the t-shirt was brilliant – she hasn’t taken it off yet! I have to say I thought the sessions were perfectly pitched given the youngsters present. This is not easy to do given you don’t exactly know who’s turning up.

We thoroughly enjoyed the session this morning. Thank you for letting Roscoe have a go and for inspiring confidence and fun for a terrific sport. Good luck with future sessions!
I thought you did a great job at the track today managing all those children of various abilities. Eve enjoyed herself and would like to try and come on Monday evenings.
Brilliant Richard! Many thanks once again. We are looking forward to coming over to Bournemouth track again soon.
Anna loved the session again yesterday and is keen to continue. We chatted about her dropping out a couple of times, but she was fine about it, largely because of your positive encouragement throughout the session. We'd both noticed that she was the smallest there, and I'm sure you've noticed she's a determined soul, so I'm sure she'll improve a great deal over the next few weeks! Thanks for your time and energy.
Bridget would love to join the "Girls on Track" coaching sessions. Also, my three boys also loved your recent series and are very much looking forward to more opportunities on the track.
I just wanted to drop you a note to say that the kids session on Saturday was excellent. It's obviously a hell of a challenge with that many kids and you guys have obviously thought about how to structure it to accommodate them all. I overheard plenty of other parents talking positively about how it seemed to be more structured, etc so well done!
Thank you for the session yesterday. Jason was brilliant with Poppy getting her comfortable on a track bike so quickly and she really liked racing with the other kids. She thoroughly enjoyed herself and spent the rest of the day with a massive grin on her face and asking when she can have her own track bike!
