The BCDS Academy was set up to Discover, Support and Develop young riders from the Bristol area who had aspirations of representing Great Britain on the world cycling stage.
Riders selected onto the Academy are given the support needed to make it to the top, with a number of "graduates" moving into the British Cycling performance pathway and representing Great britain at international events as well as a number of National Champions.

The Academy continues to evolve each year and in 2017 has grown to accommodate not only a Junior Programme but also a Paracycling team all aimed at supporting the areas young cyclists forge a career in the sport.
