On Tuesday 22 September we are holding our second Youth Distance Challenge Evening. This is another opportunity for our younger cyclists to ride the circuit at Castle Combe and achieve their Wheelers Distance Awards.
For more details on the awards see the YoungCW tab on the main menu of the Wheelers website. But as a reminder, on the night we will be riding for :-
Red – 1 lap of the circuit, (nearly 2 miles)
Blue – 2 laps
Green – 5 laps and
Bronze – 13 laps (25 miles)
This means the Challenge is suitable for many ages and abilities. For instance, you may have already been awarded your Red and Blue awards last year and now feel up to the challenge of 5 laps to gain your Green Award. Or, you just learnt to ride your bike and feel ready to ride a whole lap of the circuit!
Just to be clear, to gain the Red and Blue levels you need to ride 3 laps (1 plus 2 if you see what I mean).
Note: you may be aware we also have Silver (50 miles) and Gold (100 miles) Awards too. But the circuit closes at 8pm, so Bronze is probably the highest level we suggest you attempt on the night.
Those achieving the distances will be presented with a smart certificate and badge. And not only that but the badge is made of real metal!
We look forward to seeing you on the 22nd from 5:30pm. Make sure you bring a drink bottle and snack to give you lots of energy!
