The popular Sotonia family fun ride returned this weekend for 2015. Held on New Forest trails, nine keen youngsters and their parents joined us on a sunny day for a choice of 5 of 12 mile rides in beautiful Denny Wood near Brockenhurst. The ride was followed by an enthusiastically received skills session held by one of our new youth coaches – Phil Connell. It was also great to see club stalwart, Stuart Martingale back on his bike after his injury last year.
The kids showed some real bike handling skills for our slow bike races and balance practice, especially young Tom – our “Cyclist of the Day”, aged just four years old!
Next family ride will be mid May. We’re also planning regular coaching sessions in Southampton over the Summer – keep an eye on the website for details.
