What to bring – weekly Go-Ride sessions

Bike – Any kind of normal bike will be suitable (road, mountain bike or BMX) as long as it is in safe working order, especially the brakes, tyres and steering. The bikes will be checked by one of the coaches prior to each session but they will not be able to rectify any but the smallest problems.

Clothing – clothing for cycling needs to be comfortable for the weather conditions with no baggy trousers that can get caught on the chain, shoes with laces tucked away, and most important of all – a cycle helmet and gloves.

The cycle helmet will be checked by the coaches to ensure it is safe. Gloves are important to protect young hands in case of a fall.

Drink – even in cold weather, sporting activity makes you thirsty and a bottle of water or juice should be brought along.

Cost – each session will be charged at £2 (£4 non members) per rider to cover the cost of venue hire and insurance.

Parental Consent – each participant will need permission from a parent or legal guardian and a form will need to be completed by the parent/guardian at the first session they attend. Parents are encouraged to attend the session although they may wish to leave older riders. Parental Consent Forms can be downloaded from the Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1484886805091650/

Contact – Phil Hogan or Laura Ganderton at go-ride@staffordrc.org if you need further information or if you require a parental consent form.
