Last weekend we had our first Go_Ride outing to the Middlesborough cycle circuit and many riders had their first experience of riding on a purpose build circuit. The weather was initially against us but we eventually got out on the track, the nerves subsided and everyone seemed to have a great time.
It's really great to see so many enjoying the sessions and getting stuck into the racing with some real grit and determination. Well done to all.
