VC Jubilee organise, promote and participate in various events ranging from small club rides to national cycling competitions. There is a healthy mixture of competitive and non-competitive activities. Our regular club activities are listed below but events are constantly being added to the calendar. We have specific co-ordinators to help riders in different disciplines and our coaches attend events to offer support.
Saturday Morning Mountain Bike Rides
10am - 12 noon at the Adur Outdoor Activity Centre, Shoreham, BN43 5LT
Regular mountain bike rides and coaching activities take place on Saturdays in Shoreham by Sea. Riders are usually split into ability groups and lead by a qualified British Cycling Coach. These sessions provide the core skill development to enable young members to participate in regular competition in a wide number of disciplines.

Wednesday Evening, Club Night and Turbo Training Sessions (September-March)
7:30 to 9pm at the Adur Outdoor Activity Centre,
These sessions are for riders who want to take their training to the next level by training through the Winter. The group turbo sessions last 1 hour and focus on helping riders to train effectively in a structured environment. Riders must be 12+ to take part and some adult riders generally join in. Adults are required to supply their own turbo trainer, a piece of equipment that allows riders to train indoors on their own bike. We have a few spares for the children.
Tuesday Evening Cyclo Cross Training (September-February)
6:30-8pm at Waterhall Playing Fields, Brighton, BN1 8YR
Run with one of our partner clubs, these coached sessions develop a rider’s understanding of the skills required for cyclo cross racing. They include physical training so they can be tiring. These sessions are not just for cyclo cross riders, anyone with a mountain bike is very welcome to come along and take part. Riders need to be 12+.

In the Summer months we take part in track meetings at the revamped Preston Park Velodrome on Wednesday nights. In Winter we typically run training sessions in the velodrome in Calshot, Southampton. These cover the basics of track riding and build through structured, competitive activities.
Hove Park Youth Races (April-August)
VC Jubilee organise these very popular youth races which take place on a closed circuit in Hove Park. The race series is registered with British Cycling. These are great events for novice and experienced riders alike.
