Today 16 members of the Scout Section ventured out in freezing temperatures on their bikes. Scouts from both troops were joined by four leaders and a number of parents for the ride to Beamish. Warm soup was the order of the day at Beamish before we headed back for the down hill speedy return. Niall, 10 and new to the St. Andrews Troop said "I preferred riding back - it was fast! Still think my BMX is better than a mountain bike!".
Alex, Jack and Lawrence persuaded Stephen and Carl to head off the Coast to Coast path for a bit of frozen blast through the mud of the woods.
We discovered that Damien from Oxclose and his dad are bike experts...this was really useful for sorting Matty's pedal that fell off, sorting Connor's brakes and sorting Scott's suspension - thanks guys!
Great day had by all. We do it all again on Saturday 23rd January.   Were you there today? What did you think? Leave a comment below.
