31 riders took to the forest for the April Forest Family Bike Ride. We started at the Exceat Forest car park and headed down to Friston Pond. Then along to the Candy Canes where we did a short section of the Red Route before rejoining the Family Trail. We headed up towards the Lookout where the group split with the more adventurous going down the Snow Run, while Mark led the calmer group down to the fire road. We paused where the Snow Run ends and cheered the more adventurous riders on as they crossed the fire track and headed down the Final Descent. We all met up at the bottom to head back towards the car park. On the way we had a short pause at Friston Pond for the kids to have a go shooting down through the trees on the opposite hill, slamming on their brakes to stop going head-long into the pond.
The weather was great and it was a really enjoyable ride. We had two new club members join us for their first club ride who brought their kids along with them, so hopefully we will see Tim and Karl out again soon.
