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.

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.
Any parents able to help set out the lights on Thursday nights or who might be interested in doing a British Cycling level 1 coaching course please let us know on Thursday night
