Despite the favourable weather, his week’s Mountain Biking Club, due to ride on 20.04.18, has had to be cancelled by our instructor. However, we return to ride again next Friday 27th April as usual…..
We’re pleased to announce the return of XP Trust’s Mountain Biking Crew, after school beginning Friday 16th March (3.30 – 5.15), now that the days are getting longer. Led by Chris Green we take students out for nearly 2 hours to improve their levels of fitness and to practise their off-road skills.
Unless engaged in intervention, C21 students who will complete a cycling proficiency course before their silver Duke of Edinburgh cycling expedition should also join this group to prepare themselves for the challenge, and the Crew is open to all other students on a first come first served basis (places are limited). Please note that for safety reasons the Mountain Biking Crew activities are dependent on favourable weather conditions.
This follows the Bicycle Buddy initiative that saw a professionally qualified cycle technician attend XP School recently to service our students’ bikes. The facts and stats were:
Total Bikes serviced = 17
Brake Cable outer fitted = 2
Gear Cables fitted = 4
Brake pads fitted = 4 ( 2 sets )
Brake Noodles fitted = 5 – these are the pipes that hold the cable in place at the brake caliper.
Bottom Bracket adjustments = 3
Tyres Inflated / checked = 16
Headset adjusted = 3
There will be no football training this week on either Thursday or Friday with Doncaster Rovers due to presentation of learning on Thursday and an early finish on Friday.
