For the last few years we have been helping the Saturday children’s cycle club of this charity by organising rounds of bike checking (first Saturday) and leading a ride on the Greenway/QEOP (second Saturday). Each take place between 10.30 am and 1.00pm. The club is based at the Arc in Hermit Rd Park.
We are now looking at our 2020 arrangements and, in particular, doing another three rounds before the summer break on the following possible dates: 29/2 (checking) and 7/3 (ride); 16/5 (checking) & 23/5 (ride); 30/5 (checking) & 6/6 (ride); 27/6 (checking) and 4/7 (ride); 18/7 (checking) and 25/7 (ride).
The rides have been greatly appreciated by the children who have visibly improved their cycling. They are good fun to participate in.
We are looking for volunteers to help. If you could assist on any of these dates please let me know via the e-mail address given on this website. If you would prefer to be involved only in either the rides or the checking that would be fine, or if you are only avaiable for one or some of these dates.
Also AAA are planning to establish another childrens weekend cycling club at the Abbey Lane open space just off Stratford High St. Plans for this are still in development but if you would be interested in contributing to this please also let me know.
