Instead of a coaching session in December, we are holding our annual Christmas Family Ride. This year we're heading over to the Swinley trail centre at Bracknell Forest to have a go at some of the trails before having some lunch and some special awards.
Please meet at 9.45am for a 10am depart from in front of the Discovery Centre. We will start with some MTB games with sweets and prizes for things such as the best decorated bike and best costume. Then we will spilt into two or three groups riding the green, blue and red trails depending on ability. We will then aim to meet up back at the picnic ground about 12 noon for some games and award presentations. We are looking into hiring one of the Discovery Centre classrooms as a wet weather back up too.
Parents are encouraged to come along and the usual rules apply. Please arrive in good time to find a parking space and get your bikes ready. Check that the bike is in working order and the tyres are pumped up. Also make sure that clothing is safe and helmet are properly adjusted. Make sure the kids are dressed for the weather, which will mean full-fingered gloves and a windproof top, long tights or close fitting trousers and reasonably waterproof shoes. And remember to bring a drink and snack.
If you'd like to come, please reply to this email (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can get a good idea of numbers. As Swinley is a bit of a journey for some folks, let us know if you might need transport as we will be doing some car pooling to help out
