Just a quick update, we have been at the track in the last week fixing the bikes and having a clear up so huge thanks to all involved.
The leisure centre has now also closed. Please stay safe, be positive and take care ❤️
Sadly we have decided to suspend all Just Ride Sessions as of today due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. We have a number of extremely vulnerable people who attend as well as volunteers who are in the high risk group. Also we have a duty of care to all our users who may not be vulnerable but have family members who are older or have other conditions.
We can’t sterilise our bikes and shared equipment and guarantee that they would be virus free on all surfaces.
As we are outdoors hand washing facilities would require a journey to the toilets every time someone coughed or sneezed.
We will review this decision weekly and publish our intentions on a Thursday evening each week.
Thanks to Venus Healthcare Homes Ltd for gifting us a brand new Samsung Galaxy S8. This upgrade will sure make things easier!
We have received so much support in the last two weeks from everyone, Just Ride are so grateful.
Huge thank you to Gareth and Gillian for their donation of two bikes. One small ladies cycle and one Specialized mountain bike.
Thank you for thinking of us 😁
Massive thank you to everyone who got creative and involved with our latest arty project!
We asked different groups to decorate and upcycle a wheel so we could display them on the side of the container. Great job everyone!
Another wonderful donation received from Jo and Mark, thank you! This too is an electric trike and a great addition to our collection. Why don’t you come down to the track and try it out?
Don’t forget we are open three times a week,
Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday 10am -12pm 😃🚴♂️
Has anyone spotted our new folding electric Di Blasi trike at the track!?
Great new donation from Aubrey and Cathy, thank you so much! We are sure it will get lots of good use. ♥️🚲
Just Ride Southend is run solely by volunteers and we are looking for some new members to join our team!
Session Leader – Just Ride Southend
Volunteers are needed to run regular sessions at the track. This involves management of volunteers and organisation of the session. Full training will be provided. We are looking for volunteers who are physically able and have good organisation skills. Volunteer will need to be first aid trained but we can provide this training if needed. Opportunities for learning about bike mechanics. Volunteer must be 18+ for this role.
Commitment: Minimum 1 day per week, 9.00am-13.00pm.
If you are interested we’d love to hear from you! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org subject: Volunteering
Due to the high winds forecast we have decided to cancel the session. We are very sorry for any inconvenience but your safety and that of our volunteers is our highest priority. We hope to see you again soon in more pleasant conditions.
