The London Youth Games cycling disciplines consist of the Road Race, Individual Time Trial and BMX racing. During our road cycling event all the riders start from the same place and at the same time for a designated distance. A BMX bike is an off-road bike used for racing and stunt riding.
Did you know that Olympic, World champion and one of the UK’s most celebrated sportsmen, Bradley Wiggins used to ride in the London Youth Games for Camden? Also, 2012 Olympic team pursuit gold medallist Joanna Rowsell is also a former London Youth Games competitor, having competed for Sutton in 2004.
