Sorry all but after checking weather forecast this morning, we do NOT want children out on the roads in heavy rain. We'll re-schedule the event for after the summer holidays so that everyone can join us.
There is no go-ride coaching session this Saturday 22nd July 2017, instead we have created a family friendly ride around Meanwood.
All children need to ride with a parent/carer, teams will be given a monopoly style board and map to explore Meanwood collecting stickers/stamps and photo's (so please bring a phone/camera), we will then all meet back at club for prizes, cakes and social time!!
We will not be leading any rides, groups will go out independently, when on the roads please abide by the highway code, this is NOT a race and so ride safely, we suggest younger children use pavements and we have endeavoured to use as many cyclepaths/footpaths as possible.
The route is NOT suitable for road bikes so please use cross/mountian bikes.
See you all Saturday - the sun will shine we have booked good weather!!
