Summer Cycle Orienteering
August 20, 2017 @ 11:00 amFree
Hop on your bikes this Summer holidays to explore Swindon’s cycle paths with a FREE cycle orienteering challenge! Back by popular demand, it’s a great chance to enjoy some fresh air and exercise with the family this summer.
Choose between 1, 2 or 3 hour rides (must be finished by 4pm). Collect orienteering points along the way and hand your points cards in at the checkpoint when you finish – prizes awarded for the three highest scores in each time category.
So come along and join in this free event! You can sign up via the Let’s Ride website https://www.letsride.co.uk/rides/summer-cycle-orienteering-free-family-event, or just pop along on the day. All you need is a roadworthy bike, but we have volunteers on site to check it’s safe to ride. We also recommended that you carry a pump and a spare inner tube or puncture repair kit just in case!
The Richard Jefferies Museum are kindly hosting us as part of their ‘Culture and Cream Teas’ Sunday open afternoon.There will be cream teas, live music and lots of free activities to get involed in, if you still have some energy after cycling! So come and join us 🙂
Getting here: We strongly encourage participants to travel to the start by bike. Please note that there is no parking available on the day at the Richard Jefferies Museum. We advise that if you are coming by car to park at the nearby Coate Water County Park (Â£2.00 per day).
