Children in Need – 2012 Night Ride

It’s time again for our annual Children in Need ride which has turned into a sociable charity fun night ride, and this year takes place on Friday 16th November.

This is an unusual ride with it being at night on quiet rural country lanes. It is guided & marshalled by the coaches from Ribble Valley Juniors Cycling Club who try to make the cycling event environment as safe as possible and enjoyable for all.

The ride is approximately 25 -> 30 miles in total done at a comfortable pace (it is not a race). All riders must be confident that they can achieve this.

All riders MUST have

  • Roadworthy Bicycle with adequate front and rear bicycle lights.
  • Puncture repair outfit and / or spare tubes.
  • Correctly fitting Bicycle Helmet.
  • Suitable clothing for the climate.

The ride will be led & marshalled by Ribble Valley Juniors Cycling Club. All coaches are British Cycling trained with experienced club marshal’s doing road duties. We will endeavour to make the ride a pleasant and enjoyable experience, in as safe a cycling environment as possible.

All riders attending must take responsibility for their own actions whilst on the ride.

All participants under the age of 18 must have a consent form completed by their parent/guardian. Riders under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who must take responsibility for them and their actions.

All riders / participants attending the night ride will have to sign an attendance sheet agreeing that they are on the ride  at their own risk and that no actions will be brought against Ribble Valley Junior Cycling Club and / or its representatives.

Signing on will be at Walton Le Dale C.P. School from 9.00pm > 9:45 p.m. departing promptly at 10.00 p.m.

The ride isn’t a race it’s a guided ride at a comfortable pace for all, led by the experienced coaches & marshals of Ribble Valley Juniors Cycling Club.

The ride will start and finish at Walton le dale CP School and will be a circular route on quiet lanes around Preston. So it’s an opportunity for families to participate in a charity event together and raise money for children in need. Returning to Walton Le Dale C.P. School at 2:00 a.m. (approx..)
