For a while the committee have been trying to set up a First on Scene First Aid course for the group but it is proving a challenge to keep it to a reasonable cost, local and certificated. We all prefer we would never need to use it but there might be a time when we are glad we have the skills.
North Wales BikeSafe offer such a course.
The down side is that it is local to Rhyl, North Wales!
They welcome riders and pillions from anywhere working on the theory bikers ride in Wales.
There are places available for Sunday October 20th 2013 or Sunday November 10th 2013.
It is completely free (and includes a free hi viz vest!) you just need to get there and take lunch with you.
Harrogate to Rhyl is 127 miles and takes approx. 2hrs 30mins. We could just ride over for the day (early start but the M62 might run openly) or it could be an opportunity to ride some different roads and we make a weekend of it. (There is no requirement to go by bike but you would need to take your helmet and bike kit.)
If you are interested in attending please let me know and I will send out booking forms and let the guys in Rhyl know how many would like to attend. The latest I heard was that there were 15 places for the October date but this is not fixed as people may be booking as I write. Please also indicate if you would just go for the day of if you would like to ride some roads over the weekend and I will explore accommodation options.
NB The October date is our group ride out day.
If you are unable to attend this season maybe you are interested for 2014. (Dates not yet released and there are no guarantees it will continue).
Please email me to let me know by July 17th 2013 if you are interested.
I need the following:
1. Date option – October 20th
Next spring if it is running again.
2. Length of trip option: Prefer a day trip.
