We have kindly been invited to join VCJ on their festive Christmas ride and lunch on Saturday 21st December.
VCJ have a Xmas ride each year with bikes and riders suitably decorated. The ride is from the Adur Outdoor Activity Centre in Shoreham along the Downslink then across to Shipley for lunch at the school where VCJ volunteer Jen Harvey is the Headmistress.
Stronger riders can ride back with the VCJ coaches and others may chose to be picked up by parents, who are also welcome for the meal. There is no charge for this although there will be a donations box with monies going to the school. Riders need parental consent for any rider who is un-accompanied, see form below.
The main ride is not onerous as it is along the Downslink then some quiet country lanes and through farms. It could be done on a cross bike or hybrid for those that don’t have an MTB. There will be an routes for the more adventurous which would need MTB.
Meet at Adur at 9 with bikes (and yourselves) suitably attired in tinsel, lights, baubles, glitter, snowmen, reindeer or indeed anything of a vaguely festive nature. The main group will ride up the Downslink to Partridge Green at which point we head West to Shipley where we will be greeted by Santa’s elves dressed in the new VC Jubilee volunteer T-Shirts and tinsel who will have prepared a hot lunch for us.
The school is on School Lane in Shipley (RH13 8PL). Parents / Carers more than welcome to ride with us or meet us there. Most of our riders are capable of the ride there but can meet us there or even get picked up at Partridge Green and taken the rest of the way. The most hardy can ride back after lunch but most will need picking up from the school. As always cakes etc would be welcome.
Please let VCJ know if you would like to join in the fantastic festive opportunity so they can estimate numbers for food. Club Contact – VC Jubilee Mailto: firstname.lastname@example.org
