Lesley, that would be brilliant, the sessions have started back at Beechwood so that the kids can get a bit of uneven territory and slopes to work on and be coached on more off-road specific skills like downhill/uphill cornering, weight position and gear selection.

Your skills would be more than welcome any Thursday you fancied coming down. We have a Doodle Poll for availability and Donald and I look at who is available to take the groups and where. Will ping you a PM with our emails and mobile numbers if you would prefer just to offer on a weekly basis just now.

Might see you sunday as the MTB hours are getting ramped up before the Ten Under.

Thanks for offering - great news.

Not sure if you need any adult help from time to time at Warriors . If so happy to help from time to time or when you are short of adult help.

Don't forget your £2 session subs

Don't scare the locals
Please remember when you are arriving and leaving warriors coaching if you are sharing space with people walking then slow down and be prepared to stop. Give the people walking lots of space and do not scare them. If they step out of your way say thank you. If they don't step out of your way then you must stop and wait politely. We have had a complaint from a resident by Beechwood Park, so be on your best behaviour and save going fast for when you are on the grass.

If you have not read the Club Codes of Conduct for Riders, Parents & Coaches please read through them with your young people. You will find them here along with guidance on child protection

Riders who go off site with Steve or Bruce need to read this briefing
