Summer is here (or so I’m told)….
And therefore it’s time to get outside, ride bikes, eat good food, drink beers, listen to music and have fun with friends….
Which is why we are hosting the
We have teamed up with a number of local businesses to put on a grand opening of the Oakwell Trail. It is looking to be a great day, with fun for all the family. Obviously it’s all going to revolve around mountain biking and riding the trail, but with a few added extras to entertain everyone.
We are planning on running a time trial challenge on the trail, for both adults and kids. A back to basics fun race, where you log your fastest loop (on strava, or using a good old fashioned stopwatch) and submit it for the chance to be King/Queen of the trail.
A mountain bike skills course will be set up set up for kids to hone their skills, and set their fastest loop time to win a prize!!
Ride Kirklees will be there manning a stall alongside the Kirklees Bridleways Group to chat to everyone about the development of trails and the work we are doing to improve access around the area, being nice and saying Hi and keeping our trails trash free.
Slaithwaite based OTSO clothing are setting up shop for all your ethically produced streetwear. Local bike shop Hargreaves Cycles will be on hand for any bike repairs, advice and possibly a chance to demo some Cannondale bikes.
WhooshMTB are a guiding and coaching company from Hebden Bridge, and will be on hand to offer advice on bike set up and skills development. And if you fancy looking into booking a session or a guided ride in #calderfornia Chris will be able sort you out.
Local photographers Furness Digital are going to be out on the trail capturing the action of the riders, which will be available to purchase direct from them.
Andy’s Man club will be showing the positive effects getting out on your bike can have on your physical and mental well being, and reminding us all that #itsokaytotalk
The day is set to be a cracking event for everyone, and a good chance to come and meet the Ride Kirklees team and play out on bikes.
Hope to see you all there….
