New Year Social Ride – Saturday 2nd January

To welcome in the New Year we will be putting on a Social Ride for Riders and families on 2nd January instead of the normal coaching session.  There will be 3 rides to cover all abilities with the view to meet up for lunch at Hedley Riverside Cafe in Newburn before riding back to the start point.  This is not a coached session, however each ride will have nominated Ride Leaders,  All families are welcome to join us and enjoy the ride. Riders 10 years and younger MUST have an accompanying adult rider.

Please ensure you have a bike in good working order suitable for the distance and riding on cycle paths.  Dress for the weather and bring a spare tube / pump / toolkit.  Everyone riding will need to make sure they sign on with the Ride Leader on arrival at the meeting point.
