Well done to Green councillor Josh Williams for getting the council run after-school cycling club going again at Palmer Park sports Stadium. The first session was fully booked!
More information from Josh below:
"Thanks so much to everyone who came with their children to the first session back at Palmer Park velo for the after-school cycling!
It was fully booked, and it was fantastic to see so many kids back out on the track learning to ride and develop their cycling with Coach Gary after such a long break. Don't forget to book in advance if you want a place: http://www.readingleisure.co.uk/
Some updates - attached is a list of the after-school cycling sessions the Council is running - Thursdays are sporadic because of some athletics sessions taking place. They can't let children borrow bikes at the moment, but all being well they will be able to this summer. Next session is Monday 26th, and already filling up fast!
If you have an older child keen to develop their cycling, the Council isn't yet bringing back the Wednesday after-school sessions which were for 6 to 16 year olds. But you could contact Palmer Park Velo https://palmerparkvelo.net/ and see if they have any junior sessions, or Avanti freewheelers https://www.cyclinguk.org/group/page/avanti-freewheelers-reading who are just starting up as a community cycling club for juniors. Check them out.
Best wishes to everyone as lockdown eases, stay safe and happy cycling!
Cllr Josh Williams"
