Ythan/Active Schools childrens race - Haddo House 23 March

Postby megamouth » Wed Feb 06, 2013 2:17 pm

HI Folks,
Aplologies, the information form below hasn't retained all it's formatting, however all the information is still on it. All schools have been sent the form, but if there's a problem you can either email me for one, or copy and paste the 'permission slip' at the bottom of this page and use that.

The event is 'entry level' and aimed at children who have little or no race experience and the 'rules' have been adjusted to account for that - the essentials are a bike and helmet that are serviceable and the correct size. There won't be anything complicated like 'gear checks' for instance. Mountain or hybrid bikes are strongly recommenced, but a sturdy road bike would get you round the course, although may be a bit 'twitchy' should it be wet (it wont be :P ).

- Qualified first aiders will be present at the event. Participants must wear a helmet and bikes must fit the child and be fully serviceable. Only mountain bikes or hybrids are suitable for this course.

Hi Folks,
Please note the P4 age limit is arbitary and we will take younger children providing parents judge that they are able to ride just over a Km independently. The course will be well marshalled and marked and there will be a 'broomwagon' with first aid facilities and 'spanners' at the tail-end of each race (probably me on my hybrid with a rucksack)
Cheers, Paul

I'll also pick up entries from the next few QL training sessions if that is more convenient for anyone. :D
