AVBS Shedders

Shedders is Back!

We’ve been inundated with inquiries about the Shedders kid’s club for 2019, and after a great deal of thought and planning, we’re ready to roll it out throughout summer. So here’s everything you need to know, where to go, how to book, volunteer and what it will cost.

The first Shedders ride will take place on Wednesday, June 5th at 18:00. We’ll meet at the Afan Valley Bike Shed and, altogether, we’ll ride out on the same route for a ride time of approx. 1.5hrs. This is so that everyone can meet one another, make friends and for us to assess what groups we’ll run for subsequent weeks. We’ll be running Green, Blue and Red groups after that, so at the end of the first Shedders ride, we’ll let you know which group your child should ride in.

Each Wednesday at 18:00 after that, we’ll meet up in the car park, get into our groups and head off for a 1.5hr ride each week. Spaces for each group are limited, with eight kids in both the Green and the Blue groups, and six in the Red group. For this reason, we need confirmation of numbers in advance, so we encourage you to sign your child up in blocks of 4-weeks, paying in advance.

2019 prices for Shedders

Price per child Price per child + bike hire
Green Group £5 £10
Blue Group £5 £10
Red Group £10 £15

So that we can plan rides and organise the groups, we do require that 4-weeks is paid upfront per child. This can be paid at the shop by cash or card, on the first day of Shedders club on Wednesday, June 5th.

For Red group riders, each child must have spares for their bike and wear knee and elbow pads.

With regards to volunteers, we welcome the support of parents to help us run Shedders, and as a volunteer, you’ll ride with the group in a supervisory capacity only.
