This club was formed by Bob Reid as a result of the misuse of Moto-Crossers and Quad bikes in the North Lanarkshire and surrounding areas. We are working together with Strathclyde Police and the Scottish Auto-Cycle Union to educate our young riders on how to ride their Bike or Quad responsibly and to provide a place of safety where they can pursue their sport.
Statement from Bob Reid (Chairperson of NLSQBC)
"Our club is a new type of recreational club that has been founded to give young people opportunities for personal development and to become responsible citizens. We are committed to providing facilities for the enjoyment of their bikes or quads in a safe environment where bikers will not come into conflict with local communities or the police and I am very proud of what has been achieved in such a short time.
I would like to thank all the organisations involved for their support - the council, the police and SACU. I would also like to express my gratitude to Linda Boyce and the North Lanarkshire Volunteer Centre for their help and assistance.
We have come a long way, which is great, but there is a still a lot of work to be done. So, let's keep up the good work and get on our bikes!
The club is not a race training club - it is purely a recreational club giving riders the opportunity to improve on their riding skills, personal confidence, knowledge of their environment and understand the contribution they can make as responsible riders and members of society. For both riders and adult volunteers as an on-going commitment to rider safety we will be running or organising training courses throughout the year. So have a look around our site, then contact Bob Reid if you are interested in membership. we offer training and development opportunities in First Aid, Marshalling, Bike Maintenance, Riding skills and Rider Coaching.
