A fun day for all the family is being promised at the GSK Routes and Rides in Abergavenny, Wales, on 19th August. Starting and finishing in Bailey Park, there will be three different distances of ride suitable for all levels. These will take place between 10 am and 5 pm, and a festival of activities and entertainment is also promised.
According to the organisers, "the first ride is a beautiful 24 mile route which will be perfect for those of you who like a bit of a challenge, the middle distance GSK route is a lovely family ride that takes in 12 miles of beautiful local scenery and, in case that's not enough, there is also a fun quiz to keep you entertained as you go round. Entry for both the rides is £5 for children, £7 for adults and a £20 family ticket with entry available online or on the day."
The shortest of the rides is known as the Bailey Park Lap Challenge and is aimed at small children and mothers and fathers who don't do much cycling. This essentially is a lap of the park, with participants welcome to do as many of these as they want or are able to do. Full entertainment will follow, including display rides from BMX riders and cycle speedway racing, "so you can watch how the professionals do it."
There will be a bouncy castle, a fairground ride and "Go-Ride" competitions for the children. A Mechanics Pit Stop will enable participants to get their bikes checked over and obtain advice.
