The purposes of the Club are to promote the amateur sport of cycling in Bolton and community participation in the same area. Membership of the Club open to anyone interested in the sport on application regardless of sex, age, disability, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion or other beliefs.

The club has a fleet of high quality bikes available so we can enable children without access to a bicycle of their own to participate in coaching sessions.

All coaching activities are provided by qualified volunteer coaches. Our coaches are DBS checked, insured and are British Cycling Qualified Volunteer Coaches.

The Club is keen to promote the social side of cycling and encourage all the family to take part in social rides, while also having a strong racing scene. In competitions, our riders have achieved success in many cycling disciplines.

The club delivers Go-Ride coaching activity to develop bike handling and riding skills. As our children develop, they have the opportunity to experiences the different sporting disciplines, including circuit racing, velodrome, dirt jumping, velodrome, mountain biking and cyclocross racing.

Our qualified coaches deliver structured training in a safe traffic free environment at Bolton Arena. The sessions are differentiated to support the needs of early riders through to experienced racers.

Through the winter months, we focus on cyclocross skills and racing, and take our training sessions indoors for roller training on dark nights.

Throughout the year, we lead family rides, to take our members out into the fantastic trails that surround Bolton. We can use the British Cycling network to bring in more advanced skills training, subsidise access to specialist coaches, and access dedicated facilities, at deeply subsidised rates to ensure members from lower income backgrounds are not disadvantaged.

Bolton Macmillan Cancer Information & Support Service

When you’re affected by cancer having the right kind of information and support, at the right time, is essential. No one should face cancer alone. The Macmillan Information and Support Service provides a confidential, drop in service for anyone affected by cancer.

This includes people who:

Bolton Mountain Rescue Team

Think “Mountain Rescue”, and you could be forgiven for not thinking “Bolton”.
Nevertheless we’ve been providing a volunteer search & rescue service, covering an area of over 800 square kilometres since 1968. There are over 150 calls on our service each year.

We cover an area from Darwen in the north to Manchester Airport in the south, Wigan to the west and the centre of Manchester to the east. It’s true – that sounds like a mainly urban area that you wouldn’t associate with “Mountain Rescue” however our patch contains quite a lot of moors and open land which is full of walkers, climbers, mountain bikers and horse riders.

And that’s not the end of the story. Believe it or not many of the incidents we attend aren’t on the moors at all. Whether it’s a 10 year old child who’s fallen off a rope swing and is stuck in a stream bed, an elderly person who’s been reported missing from home, or looking after stranded motorists on snowbound motorways, you’ll find Bolton MRT working alongside the police, ambulance and fire services of Greater Manchester and Lancashire.
