We’re midway through the Hillingdon Slipstreamers Youth Summer Series that kicked off in May, and our open Go-Ride Series is already well underway. The first of our Go-Ride events took place on Monday 13th June, with riders taking part in a series of fun skills challenges like limbo, track standing, and bottle pick-up. Well done all of you who took part – results below.
Remember, the emphasis with Go-Ride is all about FUN and having a good time on your bicycles. You don’t need to be a Slipstreamers Member to take part (all are welcome!), nor do you require a British Cycling racing licence to participate as events are aimed specifically at novice racing riders who have never raced before. Go-Ride sign on starts at 6pm in the cycle circuit clubhouse, the races start at 6.30pm sharp, and it only costs £2 to take part.
Every single Go-Ride participant receives a certificate, and the top 3 boys and girls in each event receive medals – do stick around for these! Plus, prizes are also awarded to the Go-Ride Series winners – so the more events you enter, the more chance you have of picking up a series trophy!
Sound like fun? The next Go-Ride race is on Monday 20th June where there will be a Team Relay event – we hope as many of you as possible will take part in the fun! If you missed the first Go-Ride event, don’t worry there are still 5 to go, so click here to see what events are coming up!
