Get RCA Assessed

With the Road Cycling Academy

Cycling is a unique physical discipline. Especially when we compare it to other sports, such as swimming, football, tennis, a triathlon club, etc. Within those sporting environments you’ll typically have a coach assess you, before guiding you to the right path. That ‘right path’ being – a relevant grade, class, piece of equipment, or style of training. In other words, an experienced person will set you up for success.

With cycling, however, the vast majority of us will buy a road bike and start riding on the road. For most, there’s often little to no direction nor advice from a coach. External to listening to friends or finding information online, you’re pretty much on your own.

So it’s a legacy cycling culture – here at the RCA – we’re trying to change. Because it doesn’t have to be that way!
