    Oh look, another BC thing focussed purely on high level competition, indoors and lycra wearing….

    Meanwhile volunteer coaches and ‘recreational’ coaching or anything involving dirt is ignored….

    @matt_outandabout have you filled in the BMX/freestyle surveys? It’s a chance to ask for something different.

    Kind of agree with Matt, but also hoping it will have a ripple impact and get more volunteers stepping forward to take part in coaching as bike clubs seem to have a surge of new people joining them – which is great, would be even better if they had some coaching support to help them progress*.
