Winter Cross is coming!
It’s time to dig out your camping chairs, flasks, wellies, umbrella’s, big bobble hats, gloves, thermals, buy some soup and hot chocolate.
I hope you have cleared your diary?
Get ready for mud, cold, weekend of cleaning bikes/bike kit after getting muddy.
If you’ve not been to a winter cross race before come prepared for lots of mud, cold and most of all fun and socialising.
so on that note the calendar has been updated to keep you busy please take a look at the dates with the 1st race starting on 2nd September.
If anyone is wanting to order club jackets, zip off trousers, or hoodies, these are very useful for the winter cross.We can arrange for them to be at the sessions to look at, please comment if you would like to look at them.
If anyone’s not sure what happens at the races please speak to one of the coaches or volunteers who will be happy to answer any questions you or you child may have.
See you there!
Monday 28th August 2017 Family day out at Gisburn Forest, meet in The Hub car park, ready to ride at 10am. What has happened the last few times is that we split into a few ability groups, and all meet up afterwards for lunch.
For any non-riders, there are a few walks around the woods and lakes signposted too. We’ll take a gazebo or 2, so bring along a BBQ for afterwards.
Don’t forget £3 change for the car park ticket machine!
We’re also looking to do something similar at Dalby Forest during half term week on Friday 27th October, and possibly book to go around Go Ape too – there’ll be a separate post later this week so it’s not overload!!!
This years’ Christmas party is going to be a bowling party at Shipley, and includes 1 game of bowling, food and games room with air hockey & pool table, on Saturday 16th December 4pm (time tbc). Please let us know so we have an idea of numbers. The cost is £10 per child, a £2 deposit per child is required to secure a booking.
