A teenager has been selected by British Cycling to play a key role in shaping the future of cycle sport.

Rebecca Maynard, 16, from Ashwell will now join 11 other National Youth Reps from clubs across the country on British Cycling’s National Youth Forum. The group will focus on developing opportunities for their young peers and providing the chance for others to ride, race and volunteer.

She said: “Being on the National Youth Forum, within a sport that I love, will give me the opportunity to be a voice for other volunteers like myself and I will now be in a better position to encourage others to join in.”

Rebecca has already achieved a Gold Award as part of the Cycling Award for Young Volunteers programme developed by British Cycling. This means she has demonstrated a continued commitment to volunteering at her cycling club, the Welwyn Wheelers.

John Mills, British Cycling Director of Coaching, Education and Development, said: “Rebecca has already made a huge impact on cycling in her area through her role as a dedicated volunteer. We are now keen to give her the opportunity to be the voice of youth riders and help to shape the sport.”
