Since the inception of the programme to date, a large number of development and training clinics have been staged at a large variety of schools throughout the province and a total of just over 59 000 youngsters have gone through these clinics. By the end March 2020, this figure is set to rise to over 90 000 children being included.
Not only are young riders introduced to the sport, but the talented riders identified are graduated to a Higher Performance Squad that receives additional and more focused coaching and who are then prepared to be able to compete in a variety of aggregated process events with many riders competing in the various provincial and national championships events with a number that have even participated at international level events.
KZN Cycling hubs have been established in all eleven districts in KZN and supplied with storage facilities, bike trailers, bikes, helmets, spares and equipment to be able to stage clinics at the schools such as cones, tape etc as well as first aid kits.
A total of 13 x district training officers are now contracted by KZN Cycling to look after operations in the 11 x districts and these district training officers are supported by a further staff complement.
Hub activities in conjunction with the local clubs and academies continue to take place on an ongoing basis with some being more active than others but this programme allowed for the continued progress of the local learners on an ongoing basis and these accounted for more than
40 000 young riders being included in the two year time period.
