This was our footfall for last weeks sessions. Don’t forget we have another extra session Tuesday 16th April 1-3pm. If you want to avoid the crowds this will probably be our quieter session.
As most of you are aware Just Ride is becoming increasingly popular. It is wonderful that we are supported by so many people with hundreds of riders visiting the track every week. As the weather gets nicer this will only increase.
In future our session leaders will carry out a risk assessment and if they feel that there are too many riders on the track unfortunately it will not be safe for you to cycle.
We would like to make you all aware that there is a possibility that you may be turned away if we believe that it isn’t safe for you to ride.
We are sure you will understand that this is about keeping everybody safe and you will all respect our hard working volunteers. We are also holding two extra session (9th & 16th April 13.00pm-15.00pm) to help stagger the footfall.
If you are interested in volunteering please get in contact because we’d love to hear from you!
Check out our new power assisted wheelchair platform bike! It is a Van Raam Velo Plus and has come all the way from the Netherlands. This bike has been funded by Essex Community Foundation, we can’t thank them enough!
Be sure to come and have a go!
Due to popular demand Just Ride will be running two extra sessions in April.
9th April – 13.00pm to 15.00pm
16th April – 13.00pm to 15.00pm
Also from the 6th April our Saturday sessions will be extended to 13.00pm.
Spread the word! See you all at the track 😃🚴♂️
There is a Met Office warning in place for gusts of wind up to 60mph tomorrow.
For the safety of all riders and volunteers there will be no Just Ride tomorrow. Hopefully back to normal when the wind drops on Tuesday ⚠️💨🚴🏻
Please be advise that due to the yellow weather warning our session on Tuesday 12th March will be cancelled. We will keep you updated about Wednesdays session. 💨🚴♂️
Last night Just Ride Southend volunteers attended P&G’s annual Community Matters Charity Awards Night.
The event from start to finish was flawless. P&G had invited various local charities along to show their appreciation for everything they do. P&G donated an astonishing £57,000!
We are delighted to say that Just Ride received £10,000! This money is going to go towards the purchase of a new wheelchair power assisted bike.
We are all so grateful for everything P&G have done for Just Ride and a special thank you to Jo Dunn for nominating us.
It was wonderful to see so many great charities getting the recognition they deserve. It was a night to remember!
Last year we received a wonderful donation from Thorpe Bay Rotary Club. We have decided to invest the £500 donation into sending our volunteer John on a Cytech bike course. He will become a qualified bike mechanic at the end of it. Wishing him the best of luck and thanks again for all your support! Every donation really does matter. 💚
Just a reminder that we are now fully open again. Hours are:
Our Saturday sessions will get extended again when the weather warms up! See you at the track! Remember Just Ride is for EVERYONE! 😁
