The things we do!

Quite a few of our ride leaders also assist Active Living in the delivery of their cycling programme. A couple of weeks ago, a request was made by Active Living for a couple of the leaders to help with a pilot scheme. The plan was to oversee a group of parents, whilst they took their children out on a supervised bike ride. The two initial volunteers, myself & Andy had to step down, Andy for personal reasons, myself due to injury, (one of the few times an injury has had a silver lining). Some of the other leaders, being the kind of people they are, stepped in and took over. Here is Elaine’s version of the mornings events.

    Well done Paul and thanks to your son – the website’s looking good – wish you’d chosen a different pic though on the “about us” page – preferably the one which you cut me off taken in the pub!!

    Enjoyed reading about the help given to the dads and children from Surestart – sounds like they had fun!!

    Sorry to hear about your accident – hope you back on the bike soon!!

    Sounds like a fun day but who for I’m not sure. Typical reaction from our volunteers rising to the occasion and delivering a great service. I’m sure all the participants and their dads enjoyed the mornings session. I’ll bet all the mums did, having a free Saturday morning.
    Well done, Elaine, Roy, Denis and Alan.
