Scotter’s Torin earns British Cycling role

A young volunteer from Scotter has been selected by British Cycling to become part of a National Youth Forum, to play a key role in shaping the sport’s future.

Torin Cannings, 17, is currently a volunteer at Lincs Squad cycling club, part of British Cycling’s Go-Ride programme.

He will now join 11 other National Youth Reps from clubs across the country, who will focus on developing opportunities for their young peers and providing the chance for others to ride, race and volunteer.

The local teenager will meet on a quarterly basis with British Cycling HQ and the rest of the National Youth Forum.

The inaugural session took place last week at Manchester’s National Cycling Centre, where the group set out the aims for the upcoming year.

Cannings said: “ I have lots of ideas that I would like to develop for young people.”

“My experience of coaching and racing has helped me to see which things work better than others.”
