Saturday 9th March 2013

By | 07/03/2013

Normal club this week at usual times of 10am – 12 noon.

  • make sure riders are dressed for the weather ( more thin layers rather than just a thick layer)
  • arrive in plenty of time to sign on and hire bikes if necessary, ready to start at 10am
  • Parents/carers are required to stay at the circuit for the entire session (there is a cafe with free wifi) or we always seek volunteer helpers & it would be something to do instead of hanging round getting bored!
  • No adult riders unless you are a coach or approved helper (see coaches)
  • Don’t forget to sign out before you leave

The Metropolitan Police will again be at Hog Hill this Saturday marking bikes for free. Full details HERE.
