Our next Go Ride session is at Hodgemoor, near Amersham. This is a two hour skills coaching session for ages 6+ led by qualified British Cycling Coaches and split into ability groups. We usually aim to work on 1-2 specific skills in each session and often end the session with fun games or a team relay race.
Please meet at 9.45 am to register and be ready to ride for 10 am. The session will finish at 12 noon. Please make sure you bring a drink and snack, helmet and gloves. Can you also please take a few minutes before coming to check the rider’s helmet fits properly and the bike is in good working order. Riders should be using a mountain bike fitted with gears and treaded tyres. Ideally bikes should have flat (not SPD-type) pedals, and given the flinty nature of the wood, knee pads are a good idea too. Please make sure there is no loose clothing or shoe laces that could be caught on the bike.
Hodgemore woods is located on Bottrells Lane, Nr Amersham, off the A 355, opposite the Harte & Magpies Pub. Post Code for Sat Nav. HP7 0LU. If coming from Amersham turn left after approx 3 miles and park in the D shaped layby at the bottom of Botteralls Lane. See Maps Below
If you would like to join us (or would like more information) then simply book to confirm your attendance BY MIDDAY ON FRIDAY 20th April at the latest with a contact number for the day. WE ARE LIMITED IN NUMBERS DUE TO COACH AVAILABILITY SO REGISTER EARLY TO GUARANTEE YOUR PLACE. LATECOMERS (after 10am) MAY BE TURNED AWAY!!
The cost of the session is £5 per Summit member rider and £7 for non Summit member (Taster sessions). This cost is to help cover the leasing the land from the Forestry Commission and to carry out maintenance work.
