The Summit is now an established coaching facility and we have seen some incredible progress from so many of our riders since we opened 18 months ago. None more so than our youth riders who sit at the heart of what we do. We really do love seeing the amazing progress our youth riders have made, so much so we are looking to take it to the next level with our Summer Youth Development Programme.

Our Youth Development Programme will start on Monday 2nd August and will run for 3 weeks to Thursday 19th. You can choose from either a Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday, and riders will be grouped into rough ability – to ensure the best possible learning and experience for every rider.
Each rider will receive a FREE SUMMIT JERSEY included within the package price and is to be worn to each session, to show who is a part of this awesome development program.

Dates in August are as follows:
Monday and Wednesdays - 2nd, 4th, 9th, 11th, 16th and 18th
Tuesday and Thursdays - 3rd, 5th, 10th, 12th, 17th and 19th

When you book you will also be asked to select you jersey size (size guide below)

There will be a welcome session at the start of the program, and we will be looking to take 4 of the most rounded package riders to a race later in the season to represent Swinley Bike Hub & The Summit Race Youth Race Team. This is not necessarily the fastest riders, but it is the most rounded in terms of speed, style, and attitude. The cost of the 3-week course is £180 for the 6 sessions (£30 per session) including a free Summit riding Jersey!
