Family Bike Ride and Picnic

Family Bike Ride and Picnic

As part of the 'Great Outdoors' topic, which all classes are working on, we are organising a Family Bike Ride and Picnic, which will take place on Saturday 6th June 2015, weather permitting.


We plan to meet at Salt Ayre car park, where cars can be left, ready to set off at 11.00am.


We will cycle along the cycle track to the Crook O' Lune, aiming to arrive for a picnic at about 12.45pm.


The distance from Salt Ayre to the Crook is about 9km (5.5 miles) and took Mr Gittins and Freddie about an hour (including a crash!).


Although this is a very easy ride, we are suggesting appropriate 'pick up points' along the way for families with younger children, who may like to do part of the trip.


Unfortunately, the café at the Crook is closed that weekend, so families will need to take food and drinks with them for the picnic.


All children must wear a cycle helmet, must be accompanied by an adult and remain the responsibility of that adult at all times.


If the trip has to be cancelled, a text will be sent to all parents before 10.00am on the Saturday morning.


We hope to see you there!
