With the very kind help and support of Lucy Fenwick from Sustrans we have a super bike club at Christ Church, running from 3:15 until 4:15pm on Thursdays.
We learn how to look after our bikes and maintain them, play bike games and have loads of fun. Sometimes the weather beats us and we have to come indoors, but that doesn't stop the fun. Indoors we have used a specially adapted bike that makes smooties, built mini wooden bikes, create cool dust caps, practise repairing punctures...the list is endless!
We try to get out on our bikes as often as possible and have had some super rides. We have camped at Kielder Water and spent two days cycling around. We had an 8 mile ride around Cragside and then a guided tour of the house, night rides at the Rising Sun Country Park and many more around the local area.
