****PLEASE COMPETE AN INDIVIDUAL REGISTRATION FORM FOR EACH PERSON ATTENDING ****
Welcome and thank you for registering for Healthy Habits’ Sunday Cycle Skool™.
There is no need to buy a bike before coming to the club as we have some adult and children’s bikes you can use. The places are limited, so please apply early to avoid disappointment.
The first session will be on Sunday 11th March. Please come along for 09:30am. Cycle Skool™ will run until around 4pm at the Southbank Marina.
We will have access to toilets and a car-free area at the rear of the building. There is ample parking nearby. Please don’t park in Sainbury’s Car Park as they have a parking time limit.
PLEASE NOTE PARENTS MUST ACCOMPANY CHILDREN TO THE CLUB FOR THE FULL DAY
Register with ED’s Cycle trainers and you will be allocated to a suitable group
It would be great if each participant could have the following items;
- Your own bike (FREE loan bikes available – while stocks last!)
- A correctly fitted cycle helmet (compulsory for children) loan helmets are available;
- A packed lunch or money to buy lunch from local shops ; remember to bring plenty of snacks, we find that children and their parents eat a lot more than normal on the rides, things like fruit, biscuits crisps or anything that is quickly eaten
- A small rucksack to carry snacks and a drink etc when we go out on afternoon guided local rides – don’t forget waterproofs – please don’t dress to impress – dress for the weather
- A small toolkit if you have one. You’ll be given lots of advice on using these during the Cycle Skool.
There will be 3 sessions during the month – Sunday 11th , 18th and 25th March.
Your children (and you) will be receive fundamental riding skills from ED’s Cycle Co-op Trainers.
Children on stabilisers - if you can remove them before Sunday that would speed things up – but don’t worry we can do this for you. We’ll aim to have them riding by the end of the day.
Current riders – you’ll be led on off road routes in the local area after receiving skills tuition – braking, control and starting/stopping
Return to the Marina between 2 pm and 3pm– more advanced riders may be slightly later as you’ll have the option of a longer ride along the canal.
There will be plenty of time to ask questions of any of the instructors who are keen to support your learning and enjoyment.
We will ask you sign a full consent form on the first Sunday – the form you are about to complete will capture you and your child’s details – we’ll print this off for you to sign on Sunday. Below is a copy of the small print so you can read it before signing up to join the Sunday Skool2™.
Thank you again for supporting this initiative, I look forward to meeting you on Sunday 11th March. We hope you have a great time, getting to know more pupils and parents while developing your cycle skills, confidence and knowledge of some of East Dunbartonshire’s fabulous natural and cultural heritage cycle trails.
