Taster morning on Sat 24th June

On Saturday 24th June we are running an open taster morning for 8-16 years olds. Existing members are welcome to attend but it will be a bit different from normal, especially for Outer Ring riders. The focus will be very much on skills activities, obstacle courses and fun races. So it’s pretty much normal service for Inner Ring, but older riders, please do not come expecting a workout!

Sessions are running at 9, 10 and 11am and will last for 60 minutes each. We can only take a maximum of 20 riders per coach so would appreciate if existing members just came for a single 60 min slot in order that we have space for taster riders.

If we are over subscribed then we will prioritise taster riders over existing members as this is an open taster morning, after all. If this happens, please don’t be disappointed, and instead think of new friends to be made who may join in future weeks! Remember, there are still 63 acres of park to explore if you cannot ride at the velodrome.

Club members who do turn up and ride will likely be called on to demonstrate skills and to provide pacing for group activities.

The open morning is part of Brighton and Hove City Council’s TAKEPART Festival of Active Living and also British Cycling’s Summer of Cycling campaign. Both organisations have provided funding for marketing and giveaways to prospective members.

Please do share our taster day social media posts to your friends. There is a general Facebook/Instagram advertising campaign aimed at parents, and also a more focussed ad campaign that we hope will appeal to parents of younger girls and teenage girls directly. There will be a girls-only group during each of the three taster sessions.

Thankyou to our girls group of Teresa, Sharon, Idha and Jessamy for coming up with ideas to get more girls involved in PPYCC. If you’d like to be involved in this group, please do speak to one of the group mentioned above or a club coach/official.

Volunteers are welcome as always. If you are able to help out with registration, sweeping or marshalling then please let us know!

We look forward to a fun morning on the 24th and hope the sun shines on us! Links to shareable social media ads are below.
