British Cycling refines its Grand Depart experience

British Cycling, the internationally recognised governing body of cycling in the UK, has released its final plans for outreach and recreational programs in conjunction with the Tour de France's prologue and first stage.

In support of its advocacy of cycling to British youth, British Cycling has deployed Go-Ride Coaches to key London cycling venues and in surrounding schools in 2006 and 2007. Nationally, the organisation’s Go-Ride clubs have been encouraged to put on public sessions, aimed at recruiting new members and connecting with young people inspired by the Tour. In the 4 weeks leading up to the Tour, 35 clubs plan to run sessions of this kind.
