Urban Riding Skills – City Ride-out
April 28 : 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Something Different This Week!!
Most of us spend time in town in traffic, sometimes on congested roads and having to deal with situations we don’t normally come across on our usual Sunday rides.The skills needed to navigate safely around our cities are many and varied so we thought it might be good to have a morning learning and honing these skills. Our observer team has put together a practical session, a classroom brief and a ride into Birmingham (not necessarily in that order) to help achieve an advanced level of riding in this challenging environment.We will meet, as usual, at Oakenshaw Macdonalds at 09:00. We will ride as a group to –
The Binding Site
Refreshments will be available and the day’s briefing will commence at 09:45
