Good evening Whizz Kids, time to let you know what’s happening for this week’s session and it’s a bit of a change. We had originally had this week as a tie-in with a fundraising event at Pitsford Water to support Tim & Lucy Smith’s Lands End to John O’Groats Tandem ride for Thomas’s Fund ( https://thomassfund.org/).
The fundraiser event has had to be been postponed and Tim is unfortunately unable to ride the distance due to injury but the tandem ride itself is continuing as we speak by charity founder and Welland Valley CC’s own Lucy Smith assisted by other WVCC club members and it seems reasonable to still meet and have a family ride and picnic on Saturday instead and to pass the hat around for any donations to Thomas’s Fund which provides music therapy across Northamptonshire (at home, in hospital or as part of continuing care) for children and young people (0-19) with life-limiting illnesses. So, the forecast is pretty good for Saturday so we’ll meet from about 1:30 and ride a lap or two of the reservoir (12km) starting at 2:00pm and then have a picnic. Parents, grandparents and other supporters are welcome to ride with us. Don’t forget your bike, helmet and picnic and we’ll meet in front of the cafe at Brixworth Country Park. Carpark is I believe £3.20 for 4 hours but I’m not sure if the pay and display machines take cards, so raid the piggy bank and come armed with coins just in case they don’t. If you’re not riding why not join us for an afternoon outside anyway.
See you there!
