Longslade Bottom Newbie Ride!

Post by sue m » Mon Jan 07, 2019 9:59 pm

Know anyone who is thinking about giving mountain biking or riding with us a go?

See invite below.

We already have 5 or 6 possible Newbie riders joining us....

It would also be good if some seasoned NF riders join us and make the Newbies feel welcome (medium or fast group riders) - coffee stop as a bribe partway round and as Steve S is leading I'm sure there will be a Freddo chocolate at some point :lol: .....

Newforce MTB club would like to invite anybody interested in having a taster ride with us. We will have a group separate from the main club groups organised with leaders and support riders to help make an enjoyable ride. Expect 2 hours of gentle riding with a cafe stop before riding again for up to 1 hour returning back to car park.
Advisable to have a reasonable level of fitness and a bike in good working order. Helmets must be worn at all times. Bring water and snacks for yourself to have on the ride.
Starting Car park Long Slade Bottom

Refreshments at local pub to be decided
Any questions please ask

Steve S, Sue M,

I'm willing to support newbie ride on 20th Jan if required. I can also confirm any newbie interest in Korma night rides.
