Having had the wettest winter since records began, it’s hard to remember just what a fantastic summer we had in 2013 with temperatures soaring above 30 degrees at some of the events we attended.
So fingers crossed the weather is kind to us again in 2014 at the different shows, festivals, carnivals and events we’ll be heading to throughout the year with a Shoretrax portable MTB track, route guides, maps, info and advice to help people get out on their bikes.
All of our Shoretrax events are supported by The Little Bike Company in Berkhamsted who provide us with lightweight, high quality, children’s bikes for participants to use. They are sometimes on hand during the day to offer great advice for buying your child a bike or how to improve their cycling. At certain events, they will also be running a “Balance Bike Time Trial” with a special prize.
Here are a few of the dates and venues we’re looking to be at so far:
Hertfordshire County Show, 24th & 25th May 2014
