Summer Bike Bonanza at FBC Centre
Families flocked to the FBC centre for the Summer Bike Bonanza on Thursday 24th August and more than 50 people had fun on bikes on the track behind the FBC centre at Gorse Ride, Finchampstead. The My Journey Wokingham team were there with a variety of children’s and adult bikes for people to try and cycling instructors were on hand to help with some tips on how to cycle safely.
Others brought their own bikes to be checked by a bike mechanic, learned how to fix a puncture and 18 cyclists had their bikes security marked by Wokingham Borough Council’s Community Wardens. Both children and adults also enjoyed the other activities on offer, such as making their own fruit smoothie by pedalling on the “Smoothie bike” or trying not to knock off the bar on “bike limbo.” There were also balance bikes, colouring sheets and activities for the younger children.
