Kirklees Cycling Academy was founded in late 2009 to address a gap in the cycling market, as no other club in the district is focused exclusively on younger riders. It opened its doors in February 2010. 

The club is registered with clubmark. This is the universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports clubs.


British Cycling oversees all forms of cycling in Britain. Whether you are a competitor in one of the six sporting disciplines, a personal challenge rider, a commuter or a leisurely weekend rider, we are committed to helping you enjoy cycling.

Membership is open to anyone under the age of 18. We aim to create an environment for all to participate and enjoy cycling. If you would like to learn more about KCA feel free to contact us with any questions
