Team UK Youth meet Middleden Mountain Bike Club 16/05/2012Posted by Amy Hickman in Asda, Fife.
On Tuesday 15th May the Halfords Tour Series came to Scotland for the first time, with a professional cycle race around Kirkcaldy town centre. Team UK Youth are one of 12 teams competing in the series. Team UK Youth cycling team was founded by ex Formula 1 racing car driver Nigel Mansel and represent the work and values of UK Youth – national Youth Charity and consortium partner of Bike Club.
As part of their visit Bike Club Officer, Amy Hickman, arranged for the team to visit a local Bike Club group in Kirkcaldy the night before the race – Middleden Mountain Bike Club. Team UK Youth met the leaders and young people and had some photos taken with them. They chatted to the young people about everything from cycling, mountain biking to what they do in their spare time and how much their bikes cost! Some of the young people showed them a thing or two about mountain biking – and then chatted some more about bikes. Middleden were running time trials in Middleden Woods for their session and the team went down to watch cheering the youngsters on, giving them encouragement and tips.
