I am up for taking my four old Imogen along to one of these Saturday sessions. She rides a pedal bike, so not the strider session.
Which ones have you guys been to? Do they get to ride the banking?
Mine are in the older session (8-15) and we didn't start till a couple of years ago, so can't tell you much about the small ones, I'm afraid. Do they keep those going through the winter? Obv at 4 Imogen's still a way from the older sessions, but there are definitely younger kids in there (certainly 7 yr olds) - depends on size a lot. (There was a hysterically small kid spinning round a couple of weeks back - had all the energy but the ratio was so tiny he was barely moving).
Over the summer, for the first time since we've been going, there were a couple of weeks when people were being turned away it got so busy, which is great to see (if a bit manic on the track). Back to being a little quieter now. I drag mine along through the winter too (while I read the paper and have a coffee/bacon sarnie).
They are running the frog bike sessions for 4-7 year olds throughout winter, weather dependent.
Every Saturday from 13:00 - 14:00. £3 per child with hire bikes available for an extra £1
They aren't allowed on the track but they do use the polo court and the junior track in the middle. It's so funny to see some of them racing around
Cool. I'll try to get down for the frog sess. Not this week, but hopefully the 14th.
Anybody want that bike?
Not a brilliant track set-up there Ludwig!
I'll be taking my two to the Saturday 11am session this Saturday, weather permitting.
