We believe that cycling is truly a 'family activity' and we want to encourage local families to ride together. Family Rides also provide a great taster of what Wadebridge Coasters CC gets up to, and an opportunity to meet with members and find out more about us.
Our Family Rides are part of a regular programme of involvement in various local, family-oriented events:
Please note: Although Family Rides are closely associated with the Coasters Kids programme, they do not constitute a 'coaching session' and we are not in a position to provide the same duty of care as we would at those sessions. Please accompany and supervise your children on Family Rides, or failing that arrange in advance for someone else to act 'in loco parentis'. Many thanks.
WCCC's Family Club Rides cater for cyclists of all ages - whether they're riding trailers, bike seats, tag-alongs, balance bikes or just starting to pedal. These rides are deliberately flat, slow and fun! These are brilliant fun, and also a great cycle training opportunity. Children really benefit from riding with their peers - and indeed being inspired by what older children are able to do. Furthermore, qualified cycle instructors, coaches and other experienced cyclists are on hand to help or advise if necessary.
Each Family Ride has some sort of 'theme' which may involve fancy dress and fun activities. There's no charge or anything - it's really just a coordinated multi-family outing! You'll need to be self-sufficient though, so you'll want to bring water, food, waterproofs and everything else you'd normally take on a bike ride.
You're more than welcome to come on a WCCC family ride if you don't have kids yourself, but please be aware that our main concern will be keeping it fun for the little ones.
