Newark Town Centre races was a fantastic evening of elite and community cycling. In addition to supporting our ambitions to increase participation in cycling and less reliance on the car, the event increased footfall into the town, bringing visitors into Newark from outside of the area

We have worked with Generation Pro for the last two years. This partnership came about through their drive to re-introduce a Barnsley Town Centre race to the borough. It was clear from our first meeting with Generation Pro that they were very driven and passionate about the project which gave us confidence that they could deliver a fantastic event. The aim of the event was to deliver a high profile cycling event that drives visitors into the town centre but also to increase the awareness of cycling and raise the profile of the related opportunities for the people of Barnsley.
Generation Pro have been the driving force for this project over the course of our partnership bringing in over £10k of sponsorship and committing endless hours to make sure that this event is delivered safely and on budget. As a result of their efforts, we have received top reviews from British Cycling for the quality of the event and this down to Generation Pros passion, commitment and leadership skills.
Through our partnership we have also begun to explore other ways to grow cycling in Barnsley and support more of Barnsley residents to get on their bike, helping submit a successful application to Sport England on behalf of Barnsley Road Club to receive funding to become a ‘Go Ride Club’ and essentially become the first ‘GO Ride Clubs’ in Barnsley which will massively improve our youth cycling offer in the borough.
Through our work with Generation Pro we have experienced absolute dedication to the cause and a drive and determination to make this the best event possible and a real passion to grow the sport of cycling in Barnsley.
