54 young riders from Kid’s club accompanied by 20 adult leaders and helpers were super excited to be the first riders up on the new Blue Doon run on Saturday. 14 adults were also similarly excited ( if slightly more apprehensive!) for the Adult social ride in the afternoon. Anyway, a great time was had by all and everyone was impressed with the amazing views and all the work that has clearl gone in to creating such a great trail. Many thanks to Nevis Range for all that they did for the club on Saturday
Norman appeared at kid’s club on Saturday sporting a brand new hairstyle. Long gone were his flowing lockdown curls, having been replaced by an impressive multicoloured mohican. He even engineered a helmet that would allow it to poke through! Congratulations to Norman for raising £700 at the last count. Half of this money is going towards Pancreatic Cancer charity and half is going towards the Pump track. Rock on Norman!
Saturday the 12th of December saw the final session of this Winter’s block of Kids club sessions. 52 youngsters took part in these sessions and seemed to have a real blast. As this was the last session before Xmas there was a fair amount of tinsel decorating bikes but unfortunately Santa wasn’t able to make his traditional appearance due to a need to quarantine before Xmas day. Help was however at hand in the unusual shape of a gorilla in the forest who provided presents for at least a couple of groups. A big thanks must go to all the volunteer helpers who enabled these sessions to go ahead. Roll on Spring!
Gorilla in the woods!
