Brighton Excelsior Cycling Club 

VC Jubilee Cycling Club 

VC Jubilee is the youth development section of Brighton Excelsior Cycling Club. It is recognised by British Cycling as one of the top youth development clubs in the country.

Formed in 1998, VCJ had 50 members in our first year making us the largest club of this type in the south of England. As well as being an official Go Ride club by British Cycling we were also the first cycling club to achieve the Club Mark accreditation that confirms our status as one of the best-run youth cycling clubs.

Our core activity is on Saturday mornings when a skills session is followed by a coach led ride. We also run and take part in:

  • Mountain biking and cross country
  • Track cycling on outdoor tracks and velodrome
  • Road cycling on closed circuits
  • Cyclocross training and races

 The club also hosts a number of high profile events each year, these include:

  • Brighton Little Dog mountain bike races
  • South East Road Circuit Youth Championships
  • Round 1 of the London/Sussex Cyclocross League
  • Worthing Street Velodrome

Palmares

In 2015, Amy Smith, still only 17, became National Women's Madison Champion, Peter Mitchell, a 2007 World junior sprint champion and multiple UCI Para-Cycling World Champion, began his riding with VC Jubilee.

  • More About Go-Ride

    Go-Ride is British Cycling's development programme for young people. The programme provides a fun and safe way to introduce young riders to the world of cycle sport and provides a platform to improve bike handling skills. VC Jubilee has been a Go-Ride club since 2002 and continues to follow the framework with all our volunteers and members. This ensures that all our riders have a core set of cycling skills and that our coaches all follow the same coaching principals.

    More information about Go-Ride can be found on the British Cycling website.

    Duty of care and welfare - appropriate risk assessments, health and safety policies, training, compliance and child protection policies;

    Knowing your club and its community - this ensures that your club is committed to fairness and equity in respect of the way in seeks to attract and retain members from your local community;
