Rose Buddies sponsored bike ride
We opened up our new “Woky Wheels for All” sessions early this year for Rose Buddies to do a sponsored bike ride on the track behind FBC. It was a dry but chilly morning but the intrepid members of Rose Buddies came along enthusiastically with staff and volunteers, some with targets for a number of laps and some to cycle for as long as they could manage.
We used both recumbent tricycles and 2 wheel bikes for the whole 2 hour session, from 10am to 12pm on Thursday 22 March and a good time was had by all. The laps were recorded as you can see on the photo, with the number of laps being held up proudly to show everyone’s achievements and success with the personal challenges set.
All the sponsorship monies will be used for vital resources needed for allotments that are in need of attention at the start of Spring and this project is eagerly supported by members of Rose Buddies to grow their own fruit and vegetables. Well done Rose Buddies for an amazing effort and we’re looking forward to seeing you when the sessions start properly after Easter, on Thursday 19 April.
We welcome anyone who would like to join our inclusive cycling sessions (for any Wokingham residents but particularly those with mobility or balance issues) held on Thursday mornings in term time on the track, see link for booking an hour slot.
