On Saturday 30th June twelve riders took to the forest as part of our monthly Forest Family Ride. As it was a smaller group this month we were able to stop at the Pump Track where the kids (both big and small) enjoyed honing their skills around the berms.
This month we were joined by a local Seaford family who had only earlier that week googled local clubs as their 8-year old was getting more and more into cycling and they wanted to know if there were any local clubs they could join as a family. Fortuitously, they spotted the upcoming family ride this weekend so came along and are now planning on joining the club. As Dad, Dixon is a roadie, he even decided to join us on his eight-year old son’s second bike giving us a couple of great photo opportunities.
I sense the N+1 principle is soon to be evoked! Juliette commented on how, though she is glad they came along, she fears they will now be spending the rest of the summer with a very keen and enthusiastic eight-year old wanting to do this all the time now as he pretty much headed the ride and TOTALLY enjoyed showing everyone the Snow Run and Final Descent.
I’m very happy to report another young local lad has been introduced to the wealth of free fun available on our doorstep by simply bringing your bike down to the forest.
It was very hot and the shade of the forest provided some much welcome relief from the sun.
