Bigfoot to Brighton 2015

Yes, it's back again! Bigfoot to Brighton (B2B) is a series of group rides, culminating in a ride from Hayes to Brighton at the same time as the adult Bigfoot Club's ride. It's a great challenge and we have had riders as young as 9 complete the ride to Brighton. These rides are open to our riders from Bigfoot Go-Ride (Hayes and Pickhurst) and Bigfoot Youth CC.

The rides will be in groups of varying speeds to suit all riders who fancy giving it a go - with a series of preparatory rides to help build stamina and confidence. Some young riders may do a few of the shorter rides this year and complete the challenge next year. It's totally up to you what you do. Speak to your club mates about how it is, 20 young riders made Brighton last year.

This year we are adding a new level of challenge for our strongest riders - a series of longer training rides, leading to the opportunity to ride Hayes - Brighton - Hayes in one day!

All Young Riders need to be accompanied and supervised by a parent / friend of the family. Youth CC Riders may use Ride Buddies under usual arrangements.

Interested? Put the following dates in your diary:

Ride 1 - Sunday 8/2/15 - 15 and 35 mile options - rides start 10:00 am - start and finish in Hayes
Ride 2 - Sunday 22/2/15 - 20 and 40 mile options - rides start 10:00 am - start and finish in Hayes

Dear Ride Buddies
We will probably have 6+ ride groups each day - some with novice adult riders - so we need help leading rides and as lantern rouge. Can you help on some of these dates? Please let us know if you may be able to help: CLICK HERE TO TELL US IF YOU CAN HELP
